PeatPic Project

We currently have over 20 participants who have been collecting photos over the course of the summer which has been fantastic. Hopefully, we will have 2-3 more participants from Chile, Australia and New Zealand collecting photos over their summer period.

You can see map of participant locations and peatland types within the study here:

Our paper that inspired the PeatPic project, using smartphone photos to look at peatland vegetation phenology across disturbed and undisturbed peatlands has now been published in JGR Biogeosciences:
