Collection description

This dataset contains the raw data for the paper "Experimental evidence for sustained carbon sequestration in fire-managed peat moorlands" by R. H. Marrs, E-L Marsland, R. Lingard, P. G. Appleby, G. T. Piliposyan, R. J. Rose, J. O’Reilly, G. Milligan, K. A. Allen, J.G. Alday, V. Santana, H. Lee, K. Halsall, and R.C. Chiverrell. The paper is to be published in Nature Geoscience in 2018. The study measures peat and C accumulation in peat cores taken from the long-term burning experiment at Moor House NNR. Moor House is an UK Environmental Change Network Site. The accumulation rates were based on measuring the Pb content through the peat profiles and referencing them to master cores, which were dated radiometrically. The experimental design is described in the README file. Two datasets are provided: #1.Accumulation rates: contains the peat and C accumulation rates for two time periods: recent (1963.2016) and pre-experiment (1876.1963). #2.NIRS vs L-o-I data: contains the estimated C concentrations in peat samples estimated by Near Infra-Red Spectroscopy (NIRS) and loss-on-ignition.
