The EGU23 call for abstracts for the session Tropical Peatlands: Past, Present, Uncertain Future is awaiting your contribution! The session convenors are Professor Simon Lewis, Dr Greta Dargie, Dr Euridice Honorio Coronado and Professor Susan Page.

The conference will take place in Vienna, Austria and online from 23-28 April 2023. It is open to scientists of all nations.

We welcome contributions (oral talks or posters) on all aspects of tropical peatland science, including:

  • peatland mapping and monitoring
  • the impact of climate on past, present and future tropical peatland formation, accumulation and C dynamics
  • GHG and nutrient flux dynamics
  • management strategies for GHG emissions mitigation and the maintenance or restoration of C sequestration and storage
  • valuing ancestral knowledge of peatlands.

Field based, experimental and modelling studies of intact and modified systems from all tropical regions are welcome.

Please find details of our session here. You can find guidelines on how to submit an abstract here. The abstract submission deadline is Tuesday 10 January 2023, 13:00 CET.
