Carbon in peat is one of Earth's single largest organic carbon pools. Yet, despite being carbon hotspots, peatlands globally, and tropical peatlands specifically, remain poorly studied and understood compared to other terrestrial ecosystems. This workshop will bring together international scientists with expertise and research interests in low-latitude peat carbon through time, spanning the late Quaternary to today.
A workshop sponsored by Past Global Changes (PAGES) and the University of Hawaii at Manoa, as part of the PAGES Working Group C-PEAT. Events will be held at the East West Center and the Hilton Waikiki Beach Hotel.
