    Given the key role of northern peatlands in the global carbon cycle, I suggest that warming effects on peatland vegetation may have considerable consequences for future climate by controlling liberation of peatland carbon into the : Thomas Walker. Carbon Cycling in Northern Peatlands. p. CrossRef; Google Scholar; In The Carbon Cycle, leading scientists examine how atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations have changed in the past and how this may affect the concentrations in the future. New insights, and a convergence of ideas and views across several disciplines make this.

With their book ‘Carbon cycling in Northern Peatlands’, the editors aim to: 1) Highlight that contrary to the emphasis in the older literature of peatlands being archives of climate change, peatland ecosystem properties actively respond to climate change, possibly feeding back to changes in the climate system and 2) Present an overview of.

Carbon cycling in peatlands — A review of processes and controls Christian Blodau Abstract: Covering only 3% of the land area, northern peatlands store about 30% of the global soil carbon and account for 5 to 10% of the global methane burden to the atmosphere.

A review of the literature on net ecosystem exchange, net primary productivity. Northern peatlands occupy over 3 million km2 globally and contain the largest carbon (C) pool (typically > kg C m-2) among terrestrial ecosystems.

Agriculture, forestry, and peat harvesting are the principal human-induced activities that alter Cited by: 9. Peat bogs are significant contributors to the global carbon cycle, acting as large repositories of atmospheric carbon and containing over one third of the organic carbon in global soils.

Emissions of methane (CH 4) and carbon dioxide (CO 2) greenhouse gases occur primarily by two processes: methanogenesis and methane oxidation. Methanogenesis is the process by which. Peatlands are wetlands with an organic soil layer of at least 30cm, which may extend to 15–20m depth with an estimated mean between –m for northern peatlands (Clymo et al., ; Turunen et al., ).

Peatlands cover about × km2 worldwide, with 80% of the peatland area situ-ated in temperate-cold climates in the northern Cited by: Northern peatlands store × g of organic carbon and are very sensitive to climate change.

There is a strong conceptual model of sources, sinks, and pathways of carbon within peatlands, but challenges remain both in understanding the hydrogeology and the linkages between carbon cycling and peat pore water flow.

Carbon in Peatlands Peatlands globally, and particularly in high northern latitudes, have sequestered up to about one third of the global soil organic carbon over the p years, up to approximately gigatons of carbon (Gorham ; Turunen et al. ; Yu et al. Boreal and subarctic peatlands comprise a carbon pool of Pg that has accumulated during the postglacial period at an average net rate of Pg/yr (1 Pg = 10 1 5 g).

Using Clymo's () model, the current rate is estimated at Pg/yr. Longterm drainage of these peatlands is estimated to be causing the oxidation to CO 2 of a little more than Pg/yr, with Cited by: Mires and Peat 11 | Carbon Credits from Peatland Rewetting Climate - Biodiversity - Land Use.

Boreal and subarctic peatlands comprise a carbon pool of Pg that has accumulated during the postglacial period at an average net rate of Pg/yr (1 Pg = g). Using Clymo's () model, the current rate is estimated at Pg/yr Cited by: Northern peatlands cover ~3–4 million km2 (~10% of the land north of 45°N) and contain ~– Pg carbon (~10–20% of total global soil carbon), almost entirely as peat (organic soil).

Their impact on climate radiative forcing has been the net of cooling (persistent CO 2 uptake) and warming (persistent CH 4 emission). We evaluated this by developing very simple Holocene peatland carbon flux trajectories, and using these as inputs to a simple atmospheric.

Carbon cycling in boreal forests. Although temperate and tropical forests in total cover twice as much land as boreal forest, boreal forest contains 20% more carbon than the other two forests are susceptible to global warming because the ice/snow albedo feedback is significantly influenced by surface temperature, so fire induced changes in surface albedo.

Peat (/ p iː t /), also known as turf (/ t ɜːr f /), is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs. The peatland ecosystem is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the peat, maintaining an equilibrium.

The Changbai Mountain range is a well-known and important mountain chain in northeast China, bordering the Korean Peninsula in the south. It is also one of the areas most sensitive to global change. Massive peatlands that play a key role in the global carbon (C) cycle are found in this region.

Estimating and assessing C dynamics in Changbai Mountain Cited by: Peat soils are globally important carbon (C) stores, with approximately one-quarter of the world soil C stock, Gt C, stored in northern peatlands (Jobba´gy and Jackson ; Yu and others ). The C balance of a peatland is dependent on fluxes of C to and from the system, primarily the influx and efflux of greenhouse gases (GHG), carbon.

Peatlands have initiated across the boreal region of the world during the past 10 –12 years and presently form a substantial sink for the world’s carbon. However, recent estimates of disturbance to these northern ecosystems indicate that the abilities of peatlands to continue sequestering carbon may be greatly reduced.
