Abstract

All the major physiographic features in the mire - a raised bog, spring fen, and intervening water track - are zones of groundwater discharge during parts of the year. Acidic bog waters are neutralized below 0.5 m in the peat profile. A small change in the volume of groundwater discharge in the peatland may therefore be sufficient to neutralize the acidic waters on the bog surface and greatly affect the vegetation.-from Authors
