    Abstract General circulation models (GCMs) are unanimous in projecting warmer temperatures in an enhanced CO2 atmosphere, with amplification of this warming in higher latitudes. The Hudson Bay region, which is located in the Arctic and subarctic regions of Canada, should therefore be strongly...

    The article discusses the earth's peatlands and its relation to global warming. A study by Cai and Yu used sediment core from Tannersville Bog in Pennysylvania to analyze peat's accumulation rate, pattern, and variation. Another study by Frolking and Roulet state that the peatlands create a net...
