Control of carbon mineralization to CH4 and CO2 in anaerobic, Sphagnum-derived peat from Big Run Bog, West Virginia

Control of carbon mineralization to CH4 and CO2 in anaerobic, Sphagnum-derived peat from Big Run Bog, West Virginia

Biogeochemistry 4(2): 141-157

The mineralization of organic carbon to CH4 and CO2 in Sphagnum-derived peat in West Virginia, was measured at 4 times in the year (February, May, September, and November) using anaerobic, peat-slurry incubations. Rates of both CH4 production and CO2 production changed seasonally in surface peat (0-25 cm depth), but were the same on each collection date in deep peat (30-45 cm depth).
