SFE Webinar: Low-Severity Fires Protect Carbon Stores in Global Peatlands
Low-Severity Fires Protect Carbon Stores in Global Peatlands: Thermal Alteration of Soil Organic Matter Slows Decomposition

A free one hour webinar from Duke University, the Southern Fire Exchange, NC State University, and the University of Florida.

Society of American Foresters CFE Credit Expected.

Presenters:
Neal Flanagan, Ph.D., Duke University

Webinar Description: Severe wildfires can cause smoldering ground fires that oxidize entire carbon stores and threaten peatlands around the globe. However, low‐severity surface fires can physically protect soil organic matter by thermally altering surface carbon chemistry, thus creating a slower cycling carbon pool that positively affects long‐term carbon balances in peatlands worldwide.

Following the presentations there will be time for audience Q/A with the speaker.

Webinar Requirements: A reliable internet connection and speakers / headphones are required to participate. Webinar audio will be broadcast directly to your computer and may be available via a call-in number. See registration email for more details. Webinar participants do not need a microphone or video camera. See the Zoom Help page for more information about the Zoom webinar platform requirements (https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us).

Webinar Recording: If you can't make the webinar, look for the recording to be posted on the Southern Fire Exchange YouTube Webinar Archive.
