Optimising Peatland Restoration

Project Summary:

Using research to support multi-million pound investments in peatland restoration by:

  1. Producing a user-friendly digital model (DigiBog_Hydro) to inform where and what peatland restoration activities can do to optimise ecosystem service delivery, and how this delivery may change with climate change.
  2. Creating a menu of methods to help practitioners to calculate a value for the benefits of peatland restoration.

Project Team: Prof Andy Baird, Dr Julia Martin-Ortega, Dr Martin Dallimer, Dr Marie Ferré – University of Leeds; Profs Martin Evans and Tim Allott, University of Manchester; Prof Fred Worrall, Durham University; Tim Thom, Yorkshire Peat Partnership, and Jonathan Walker, Moors for the Future Partnership.

Duration: March 2018 – Feb 2019
