Five year record of aquatic carbon and greenhouse gas concentrations from Auchencorth Moss

Dataset contains concentrations of particulate and dissolved organic carbon, inorganic carbon, CO2, CH4 and N2O in the Black Burn stream which drains Auchencorth Moss peatland in South East Scotland. Auchencorth Moss is part of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology's UK Carbon Catchment project. Concentrations have been measured approximately weekly from January 2007 to December 2011 and are published in Global Change Biology doi: 10.1111/gcb.12209

Publication date: 2013-12-12

Provenance & quality

Water and headspace (for gas analsyis) samples were collected approximately weekly primarily by Dr Kerry Dinsmore. Analysis was carried out at CEH Edinburgh, again primarily by Dr Kerry Dinsmore. The samples were collected from a single sampling site over the 5 year period. A detailed description of the datasets, including methodology and discussion of the findings can be found in the following peer-reviewed article: Dinsmore, K.J.; Billett, M.F.; Dyson, K.E.. 2013 Temperature and precipitation drive temporal variability in aquatic carbon and GHG concentrations and fluxes in a peatland catchment.
