Peatlands store a major share of the world’s soil organic carbon. Many European peatlands have been drained and cultivated in the past centuries. This fosters land surface subsidence and peat mineralization. Therefore, drained organic soils are a large source of greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions and, at the same time, at a high risk of being degraded and lost.
At this conference, we want to discuss options for maintaining production on organic soils while reducing GHG emissions and buffering climate change. The seminar will cover a range of topics:
Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Ultuna Campus, Uppsala, Sweden
Lecture hall L in the Teaching Building (Undervisningshuset) (oral presentations)
Department of Soil and Environment (poster session and conference dinner)
Organized by the FACCE-ERA-NET+ CAOS project and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
