Revegetation & remote sensing on peat extraction area
Challenges: Former peat extraction site will be restored by raising WLs and mechanised sowing of peat moss to facilitate revegetation, which is otherwise a very slow (>20–30 years) and unpredictable process.
Solutions: Cross-scale (ground measurement, drone image, satellite image) vegetation and GHGE monitoring to verify reduced GHGE and carbon sequestration.
Outcomes: Quantified GHG and biodiversity impacts of raising WL or sowing plant fragments.
