The project proposes a data-model investigation of the relationship between paleoclimate and long-term carbon accumulation in Alaskan Arctic and subarctic peatland. Peat cores will be analyzed using compound-specific isotope and biomarker tracers as well as existing paleoclimate proxies and 14C dating.
OUTCOMES: Completed analyses of three sites and working on the fourth. Evidence shows that the peats experienced climatic shifts at similar times.
