CO2 fluxes from lowland peatlands in East Anglia

This project uses a micrometeorological eddy covariance flux tower to monitor high frequency variations in CO2 exchanges between drained and intensively farmed lowland peatlands and the atmosphere. A further aim is to compare the CO2 dynamics of the agricultural peatland with semi-natural and restored peatlands in the same region.
