Water-driven methane transport in Burns Bog, British Columbia, Canada
Civil and Environmental Engineering
Summer 2018

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.
