Book Description:

Beginning with a conscientious introduction to the history and global significance of peatlands, Geomorphology of Upland Peat offers a detailed synthesis of the existing literature on peat erosion, while incorporating new research ideas and data from two of the leading experts in the filed. With damaging effects ranging from the exacerbation of water coloration problems and reservoir sedimentation, to the disruption of the major role that peatlands play in the global carbon cycle, the erosion of upland blanket peat is a critical environmental problem. Presenting the most detailed work on the subject to date, this comprehensive summery is intelligent and accessible; adorned with rich illustrations, photographs, and original drawings. While much of the research focuses on upland mines in the UK, the novel approaches and techniques presented in this volume will be of great interest and benefit to those working in a broader context of organic sediments in other environments.

About the Author:

Martin Evans is a reader in geomorphology at the University of Manchester.

Jeff Warburton is currently a reader in geomorphology in the Department of Geography at Durham University.
