The burning issue of the world's vulnerable carbon sinks
The burning issue of the world's vulnerable carbon sinks
Description
Changing climate conditions and increasing occurrences of wildfires may leave globally important carbon stocks defenceless, new research shows.A study led by the University of Birmingham (UK), shows vast carbon-rich layers of peat (dead plant debris) found across the world are under threat from a drop in general water table levels and warmer temperatures, as a result of climate change. With drier peatlands becoming more prevalent and wildfire activity on the increase, the peat's carbon content is at a higher risk of being released into our atmosphere.
