- ... Data on ecosystem‐scale methane (CH₄) fluxes in tropical peatlands are currently lacking in the global CH₄ budget. Although the waterlogged Indonesian peatlands contain the largest share of peat carbon in South‐East Asia, ecosystem‐scale CH₄ budgets have not yet been reported, although these peatlands have the potential to emit CH₄. We observed 1‐year variations in the ecosystem‐scale CH₄ flux in ...

- ... Tropical peatlands, which coexist with swamp forests, have accumulated vast amounts of carbon as soil organic matter. Since the 1970s, however, deforestation and drainage have progressed on an enormous scale. In addition, El Niño and Southern Oscillation (ENSO) drought and large-scale fires, which grow larger under the drought condition, are accelerating peatland devastation. That devastation enha ...
