Aquatic carbon and greenhouse gas concentrations in headwater streams draining from natural, drained and restored peatland catchments in the Flow Country, Scotland, September 2008-August 2010

The dataset contains aquatic carbon and dissolved greenhouse gas data collected from 6 headwater stream sampling sites within the UK’s largest tract of blanket bog, the Flow Country of N. Scotland. The streams drain from catchments under different peatland management regimes: natural non-drained peatland, drained peatland, and restored peatland (achieved via ditch blocking). Sites were sampled on an approximately fortnightly basis between September 2008 and August 2010. Data were obtained via collection of water and gas samples in situ, and concentrations were derived via subsequent sample processing and analysis.
