In this episode of Studio Veenweide – In Depth, researcher Gilles Erkens (Deltares/UU) gives a lecture on mechanisms in the soil that are related to peat decomposition and greenhouse gas emissions. Which mechanisms cause subsidence, and which mechanisms are related to greenhouse gas emissions? Why are soil subsidence measurements needed for research into greenhouse gas emissions? Which variables play a role here, and why is it important to understand these processes in order to arrive at solutions? You’ll hear more about these questions in this episode.
