SPRUCE S1 Bog Areal Coverage of Hummock and Hollow Microtopography Assessed Along Three Transects in the S1 Bog

Aerial coverage of hummocks and hollows was estimated in July 2012 in ten 4 m × 4 m plots each along three 60-m t transects (30 plots total) in the S1-Bog. Hollows were defined as the lowest elevation within plots and were typically at or near the height of the water table, hummocks included area above hollows, including the sides of the hummocks.
