Effect of controlled drainage on the carbon balance of a cultivated peat soil in Finland



This data provides the carbon balance of drained peatland under controlled drainage during the growing season in 2016 in Mouhijärvi, Southwestern Finland. The CO2 fluxes measured with a transparent chamber method were divided into gross primary productivity (GPP) and ecosystem respiration (ER) for modelling based on environmental factors (light and temperature) and canopy reflectance (leaf area index, LAI). The GPP model estimates the effect of light and vegetation status, whereas the ER model captures the share of foliar biomass-dependent respiration and the ground water table. (2016-06-01)
