LIAG-Seminar: Mapping and characterizing peatland using ground-penetrating radar and nuclear-magnetic-resonance

Vortragende: Bárbara Blanco Arrué, Jan Igel, Mike Müller-Petke

Peatlands are a crucial component of the global carbon cycle and have an impact on local and regional hydrology due to their high water storage capacity. Therefore, there is great interest in renaturation and sustainable land use, which requires knowledge about the current state of the peat layers and methods to monitor their changes. Within the EU project “Blue Transition” on integrated water and soil management in times of climate change, we conducted ground-penetrating-radar (GPR) and nuclear-magnetic-resonance (NMR) surveys at a peatland site in northern Germany. Our study demonstrates that ground-based geophysics can provide the required information and may easily be upscaled to effectively cover areas at the kilometre scale.
