Webinar - Low-Severity Fires Protect Carbon Stores in Global Peatlands


A free one hour webinar from Duke University, the Southern Fire Exchange, NC State University, and the University of Florida.


Neal Flanagan, Ph.D., Duke University

Webinar Description:

Severe wildfires can cause smoldering ground fires that oxidize entire carbon stores and threaten peatlands around the globe. However, low‐severity surface fires can physically protect soil organic matter by thermally altering surface carbon chemistry, thus creating a slower cycling carbon pool that positively affects long‐term carbon balances in peatlands worldwide. Following the presentation there will be time for audience Q/A with the speaker.
