Bárbara Blanco Arrué, Jan Igel, Mike Müller-Petke:  Mapping and characterizing peatland using ground-penetrating
radar and nuclear-magnetic-resonance



Peatlands are a crucial component of the global carbon cycle and have an im-
pact on local and regional hydrology due to their high water storage capacity.
Therefore, there is great interest in renaturation and sustainable land use, which
requires knowledge about the current state of the peat layers and methods to
monitor their changes. Within the EU project “Blue Transition” on integrated
water and soil management in times of climate change, we conducted ground-
penetrating-radar (GPR) and nuclear-magnetic-resonance (NMR) surveys at a
peatland site in northern Germany. Our study demonstrates that ground-based
geophysics can provide the required information and may easily be upscaled to
effectively cover areas at the kilometre scale.
