Short summary
At the eastern border of the West Siberian Plain, south of permafrost, peat started to accumulate 15000 years ago. Peat accumulated as fen peat at a constant rate of 0.2 mm yr-1 and 0.01 kgC m-2 yr-1. Over the last 2000 years, the bogs have changed into Sphagnum mires, accumulating about 0.1 kgC m-2 yr-1 until the present. The high accumulation rate of peat in unfrozen mires indicates that thawing of permafrost peat may change northern peatlands into long-lasting carbon sinks.
