Taking the pulse of peatland carbon emissions could measure climate impact of development

A new way to take the pulse of carbon emissions could help track how the industrial development of peatlands contributes to climate change, as well as measure their recovery once development ends. A team of researchers led by the University of Glasgow discuss how they have has used carbon-14 dating to determine for the first time the age of carbon dioxide being released from peatland sites.
