Modeling long-term carbon accumulation of tropical peat swamp forest ecosystems

Modeling long-term carbon accumulation of tropical peat swamp forest ecosystems

Peatlands play an important role in the global climate system and carbon cycle; their large carbon stocks could be released to the atmosphere due to climate change or disturbance, resulting in increased climate forcing. I modified the Holocene Peat Model (HPM), a process-based model coupling water and carbon balance for simulating carbon dynamic over millennia, to be applicable for tropical peatlands.
