Basal peat samples come from strata that directly overlie sandy aeolian sediments, minimizing compaction effects in the curves. The basal peats sampled for these reconstructions are swamp peat and fenedge peat ( Alnus peat, that is, alder peat), which form approximately at or slightly below the annual mean groundwater table ( Charman, 2002 ).

Peat Wikipedia

Peat (/ p iː t /), also known as turf (/ t ɜːr f /), is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic matter. It is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs. The peatland ecosystem is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the peat, maintaining an equilibrium.
