This dataset contains measures of soil respired radiocarbon as CO2 and CH4 from peatland plateaus and thawing peatland plateaus and from burnt and unburnt forests from permafrost in subarctic Canada. The radiocarbon content of soil respired CO2 and CH4 was measured during summer in 2013 and 2014 in Yukon and Northwest Territories. Monitored sites included peatland plateaus, thawing features of peatland plateaus and unburnt and burnt black spruce forests.

This dataset is part of the following
Soil respired CO2 and CH4 was collected from chambers and probes in zeolite molecular sieve (Type 13X) cartridges. The cartridges were sent to the NERC Radiocarbon Facility in East Kilbride (UK) for 14C analysis and were assigned a publication code. Values of radiocarbon enrichment are expressed in percent modern carbon. Ages are reported as conventional radiocarbon age with years BP (before present, where present is defined as AD 1950).
