Abstract

Eyes on the Bog provides a scientifically robust, repeatable, low tech, long-term monitoring initiative.
The standardised methodology enables individual peatland sites to be consistently monitored across the UK, creating a network of comparable sites. The initiative employs cheap, simple techniques and modern technology to enable useful monitoring information to be collected by peatland community employees or volunteers on:
Peat subsidence and carbon loss
Carbon capture
Water table behaviour
Peat soil condition
Vegetation status, structure and composition
Historical context of change and current trajectories
