  Information - HS53 Peatlands: processes and policy

Event Information
There is growing concern about peatland degradation in response to climate change or land management and the deleterious effects of such degradation on carbon release, hydrology, water quality and ecosystems. In this session, papers are invited on any aspect of peatland science or management, including peatland restoration. Contributions will be particularly welcomed on integrated studies that combine research into peatland processes. Such integrated research could include, for example, studies into the links between hydrological processes, carbon cycling (or other elements/compounds), ecology, water flow paths, and/or the interactions between peatlands and climate change. Papers on technical developments that aid measurement or modelling of peatland processes are also encouraged. The session also aims to stimulate discussion on appropriate methods for coupling small-scale peatland studies with global or regional scale studies.
