Water stress model for Northern peatlands


Alexaneder Gruber, along with first author Bram Valkenborg of the KU Leuven and others, published the article "Drought and Waterlogging Stress Regimes in Northern Peatlands Detected Through Satellite Retrieved Solar-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence" in AGU's Geophysical Research Letters. 


  • Satellite-based observations of solar-induced fluorescence were used to analyze vegetation stress in northern peatlands.
  • In many areas, vegetation stress results from both drought and waterlogging.
  • Stress behavior in the analyzed peatlands is highly dependent on the water table depth.
