Mineral components in a peat deposit: looking for

2012-11-10  The peat deposit is a compact, undisturbed remnant of a minerotrophic fen underlined by sand sediments. The main feature of the peat is a presence of a continuous, horizontal dark layer, about 5–15 cm thick, rich in charcoal, located in the middle of the peat deposit. Above the layer, isolated fragments of charcoal were observed.

Geochemical and stratigraphic evidence of

2006-10-1  The peat deposits in Lynch's Crater exhibit aspects of minerotrophic and ombrotrophic conditions, as demonstrated by comparing the Ca/Mg molar ratio of the peat with local rainwater values . Another method to distinguish between an ombrotrophic and minerotrophic setting is to use the major cation Ca, because it is a limited input in ombrotrophic peats ( Verhoeven, 1986 ).

2006-10-1  The deposit consists of 1.5 m of ombrotrophic peat underlain by a minerotrophic peat. Within the minerotrophic section, sponge spicules and diatom fragments offer evidence of prolonged flooding of the peat environment resulting in several layers containing (up to 50%) high inorganic material.

Toward the edges, the deposit has a surface cover of more minerotrophic plants (such as swamp-forest trees, ferns, and palms). Petrographic/botanical analysis of the deposit with depth reveals the presence of five peat types (swamp-forest, sedge-grass-fern, Sagittaria et al., Nymphaea et al., and Rhizophora).

2005-12-1  The minerotrophic section contains several layers, up to a few cm thick, where abundant sponge spicules, diatom fragments and detrital quartz are indicative of high algal and protista productivity. These layers are characterised by high (up to 50%) ash, indicating persistent flooding of the peat deposits of Lynch's Crater and signalling periods of change in precipitation in North Queensland, Australia.

2018-3-20  In England and Wales peat is classified as a deposit of at least 30 cm depth (50 cm in Scotland) containing more than 50 % organic carbon (Johnson and Dunham, 1963). This definition is arbitrary as there is no clear break between a highly organic mineral soil (e.g. podzol) and an almost purely organic Sphagnum peat (Clymo, 1983).
