Short summary
Tropical peatlands are an important source of organic carbon to rivers. However, due to the remoteness of these ecosystems, data are scarce. We present the first combined assessment of both lateral organic carbon fluxes and CO2 emissions from an undisturbed tropical peat-draining river. Compared to the organic carbon concentrations, CO2 fluxes to the atmosphere were actually relatively moderate, which we attributed to the short water residence time.
