anthropogenic influences upon metal deposition and behaviour. Ombrotrophic peat bogs have become increasingly used with apparent success as archives of the deposition of inorganic elements, e.g.

Pb, from the atmosphere. Where dating has been available, this has led to the reconstruction of the history of environmental Pb pollution. prehensive historical data for Scottish peat bogs, represent-ing up to years of deposition, and also, through isotopic comparison with other environmental archives from western Europe and Greenland, to extend our knowledge of the chronology and sources of atmospheric Pb deposition trends across the northern hemisphere.

Materials and Cited by: If minerogenic peat deposits could be used as archives of atmospheric metal deposition, it would significantly broaden our understanding of the geographic distribution of atmospheric metal pollution.

During the course of our studies of Swiss peat bogs, we have measured Pb concentrations in many peat deposits, some of which are by: W.

Rev., 4 Cited by: Atmospheric metal pollution is recorded in different environmental archives such as lake and marine sediments, snow and ice and peat bogs. Among these archives, peat bogs have proven to be effective in reconstructing the history of atmospheric metal deposition throughout Europe, but.

and BoŽí Dar Bog), we illustrate a previously unexplored problem concerning the computation of metal deposition, using Pb as an example. When peat cores are collected, sectioned into depth intervals, Pb dated and analyzed for metal contents, the Pb dates most appropriately correspond to the midpoint depth for each interval, whereas the metal contents correspond to the Cited by: Given the increasing interest in using peat bogs as archives of atmospheric metal deposition, the lack of validated sample preparation methods and suitable certified reference materials has hindered not only the quality assurance of the generated analytical data but also the interpretation and comparison of peat core metal profiles from different laboratories in the international community.

Using Br and Se as reference elements, the natural and anthropogenic fluxes of atmospheric Hg were reconstructed for the past 10 years using peat cores from Caribou Bog, ME.

In the ombrotrophic peat layers, the average background Hg accumulation rate (AR) was ± μg m-2 year-1 which is comparable with the natural rate of atmospheric Hg accumulation reported in other retrospective Cited by: Shotyk, W.

Historical records of mercury (Hg) accumulation in lake sediments and peat bogs are often used to estimate human impacts on the biogeochemical cycling of mercury.

On the basis of studies of lake sediments, modern atmospheric mercury deposition rates are estimated to have increased by a factor of 3−5 compared to background values: i.e., from about 3− μg Hg m-2 yr-1 to 10−20 μg Hg m-2 Cited by:   Shotyk, W () Peat bog archives of atmospheric metal deposition: Geochemical evaluation of peat profiles, natural variations in metal concentrations, and metal enrichment factors.

Peat (/ p iː t /), also known as turf (/ t ɜːr f /), is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs.

The peatland ecosystem is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the peat, maintaining an equilibrium. Corresponding metal inputsand 54 mg/m/sup 2//yr for K, Mg, and Pb, respectively.

K and Mg are vertically distributed in the bog profile in accord with the inhomogeneous ion exchange chemistry of peat, while lead is distributed in accord with historical trends in atmospheric lead fallout. • Reconstruct the history of atmospheric deposition of Pb, As, Cd, Zn and Ni since the onset of the Industrial Revolution from the upper.

- Many well-preserved artifacts from bog bodies, animal fossils to treasures have been discovered in ancient peat bogs. Recently, a medieval well-preserved sword was found in a peat bog in southeast Poland. "This is a unique find in the region" - said Bartłomiej Bartecki, director of the museum.

This article reviews the basis of the method and its application to dating of peat deposits. Important steps in the radiocarbon dating procedure are described, including selection and extraction of material (and fractions) for dating, chemical and physical preparation of media suitable for measurements, measurements of 14 C activity or.

It has to do with how inhospitable the conditions in a bog are for the bacteria that usually do the business of decomposition. Bogs form when moss accumulates in low-lying patches of land.

The moss saturates the soil with water and prevents oxygen and nutrients from circulating in. Book Chapters. Zaccone, S. Pabst, T.M.

This peaceful place is in a national park and is arguably one of the most beautiful spots in Europe. It is also a phenomenal archive of atmospheric metal depositions over the past 15 years.

ETG is an ombrotrophic bog. Pb dating of two metal-polluted organic sedimentcores obtained near a former pyrometallurgical zinc smelter in Lommel, Belgiumhave been used to reconstruct atmospheric lead deposition rates during the20th century.
