SPRUCE Geochemical Changes in Porewater from Northern Peatlands at Multiple Depths in Field Samples and over Time in Peat Incubations

Description

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.
