QUBBES Peatland (Project Complete)

Quantification of Blanket Bog Ecosystem Services to Water (QUBBES) is an EPA funded research programme

This EPA-funded research project to quantify blanket bog ecosystem services (QUBBES) is currently investigating this issue and seeks to develop an approach(es) for blanket bog management that can facilitate existing economic activities, while deriving maximum benefit from ecosystem services.

Research will continue for the next 2.5 years, in which it will compare hydrological and water quality conditions in relatively intact sites with those from catchments where forestry/peat cutting/upland agriculture occurs, along with areas where restoration has been carried out.
