Impacts of Holocene peat deposits on nearshore biogeochemical processes and trace gas production

Universität Rostock, 2019

Abstract: While most of coastal sediments consist of sand, in some areas marine ingression caused submergence of peat. These processes affect the coastal carbon balance as peat represents a potential source of carbon-containing solutes and gases. The study combines geophysical and geochemical analysis of field data with hydrological processes and their effects on biogeochemical mineralization processes. The influences on the carbon balance in shallow water were therefore simulated in an experimental study.
