Abstract

Most ground-water flow is probably caused by the development and persistence of large raised bogs, and occurs because of ground- water mounds (elevated water tables) under the bogs. Lateral bog growth may be limited by the neutralizing of bog water acidity by ground-water discharge at raised bog margins.-from Author
