Carbon capture and sequestration in peat in response to positive and negative feedbacks...by Coleen Murty
Why study peatlands?
This research aims to investigate sphagnum acid in more depth by determining which form it primarily exists within peat - in its free form or bound form within the cell. Results could give insights into the best way of preserving carbon. In order to answer the question of whether capture and sequestration of carbon in peat is feasible, the chemical nature peat organic matter must be understood at a deeper level.
