Increasing contribution of peatlands to boreal evapotranspiration in a warming climate

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 11 May 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-020-0763-7 Climate warming increases evapotranspiration (ET) more in boreal peatlands than in forests. Observations show that peatland ET can exceed forest ET by up to 30%, indicating a stronger warming response in peatlands. Earth system models do not fully account for peatlands and hence may underestimate future […]
