Abstract

Methane (CH4) emission data collected from an extensive pristine portion of raised peat bog located in Moidach More, Morayshire, northeast Scotland (UK). CH4 flux was measured using static chambers, which were sampled on a weekly (late spring to early autumn) to monthly basis (late autumn to early spring), starting in May 1997.

Collection Method: Methane (CH4) flux was measured using static chambers, made out of polypropylene. Each chamber lid was fitted with a silicone rubber septum, which allowed repeated sampling of the headspace gas with a needle and syringe, both immediately after closure and then again 20 minutes after the initial sample was taken. Samples were stored in syringes that had 3-way stopcocks, and were analysed using a gas chromatographic flame ionization detector (GC FID). Samples were taken on a weekly (late spring to early autumn) to monthly basis (late autumn to early spring), starting in May 1997.
