Rewetting bogs can increase methane emissions in the short term, but ultimately the approach helps restore peatlands and create larger carbon sinks.
Constructed wetlands can significantly reduce water pollution from tile-drained farms.
Climate models could be vastly underestimating methane emissions from the world’s tropical wetlands, according to observational surveys of wetlands in Zambia.
Understanding and predicting the geomorphological response of fluvial and tidal channels to bank retreat underpins the robust management of water courses and the protection of wetlands.
Some deltas are susceptible to land loss during sea level rise, whereas others gain land because of changes in the courses of rivers.
In northern Bangladesh, residents are losing their livelihoods, homes, and personal safety when water carries sand and gravel into their communities.
A new approach to detect hot spots of methane emissions with eddy covariance flux towers proves to be a worthy contender.
Accounting for these storms and flooding can help experts predict and respond to rising sea levels.
A shift in priority and approach to wetland restoration could reduce atmospheric carbon.
New climate records from a peat bog show how two neighboring cultures responded differently to shifts in climate and ocean currents.
