Oral SessionS10 Wetland Soils
Peatland soils hold one-third of the global soil carbon pool and they are a major source of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. It is important to understand the sensitivity of peatland soil carbon pools and methane emissions to a wide variety of perturbations. The specific perturbations addressed by this symposium include drought, fire, mining of oil sands, flooding for hydroelectric and peat mining.
