SPRUCE Methylotrophic Methanogenesis in Sphagnum-dominated Peatland Soils – CH4 and CO2 Production in Laboratory Incubations
This study investigated the potential for methylotrophic methanogenesis in three Sphagnum-dominated peatland soils in northern Minnesota. Collected soils were amended with 13C-labeled traditional substrates (acetate and sodium bicarbonate/ H2) and methylated substrates (methanol, monomethylamine (“MMA”), dimethylsulfide (“DMS”)) and monitored for δ13C-CH4, δ 13C-CO2, and net CH4 and CO2 production in laboratory incubations.
SPRUCE Geochemical Changes in Porewater from Northern Peatlands at Multiple Depths in Field Samples and over Time in Peat Incubations
This data set reports the results of the analysis of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in porewater samples collected from multiple depths in northern peatlands and during laboratory peat incubations to characterize the gain or loss of specific chemical moieties (e.g. CH2, H2, CH2O, etc.) that may be attributed to microbial degradation. During incubations, CO2 and CH4 concentrations and stable isotopes were determined by isotope ratio mass spectrometry.
Autochamber CO2 and CH4 Flux Data for the SPRUCE Experimental Plots
This data set reports measurements of CO2 and CH4 fluxes and d13C-CO2 and d13C-CH4 values associated with each flux measurement for the SPRUCE experimental study plots located in the S1-Bog. Flux measurements started in 2014 and are continuing.

SPRUCE Data-constrained Projections of Methane Fluxes in a Northern Minnesota Peatland in Response to Elevated CO2 and Warming: Modeling Archive
Study developed a data-informed process-based model using methane chamber measurement data from the SPRUCE project experiment in a northern peatland in northern Minnesota.
Study used existing manual CH4 flux measurements collected from the ambient environment from 2011-2014 and developed a data-informed process-based methane module. The module was incorporated into the Terrestrial ECOsystem (TECO) model before its parameters were constrained with multiple years of methane flux data for forecasting CH4 emission under five warming and two elevated CO2 experimental treatments at SPRUCE.
Included in this model archive are the (1) source code of the TECO model used in the study (2) the posterior distribution of parameters values, and (3) model simulated results of methane emission for different pathways under different environmental conditions.
