Methane emission from bogs is highly sensitive to temperature variations and could accelerate global warming through a positive feedback loop. To better assess current methane release rates and predict future emissions, I propose to measure how much methane is released from Burns Bog (British Columbia, Canada) via water-driven motion (stirring). This research will be part of a study that compares methane emissions from wetlands at different latitudes in which land use has influenced the natural hydrology in disparate ways.
