Dachnowski-StokesMissing: North Carolina. Peat deposits of North Carolina are of three main geologic types representing the accumulation of organic matter in: (1) pocosins (broad shallow depressions on an uplifted sea floor), (2) river flood-plains, and (3) Carolina Bays (elliptical depressions of unknown origin).

For example, in the coastal plain of North Carolina, USA, where wildfire is common, over teragrams of carbon (Tg C) are stored in peat deposits up to 5 m deep. We estimated carbon emissions for a temperate peatland fire in North Carolina using remote sensing to reconstruct burn severity and topographic lidar to constrain peat burn by: Bog iron is a form of impure iron deposit that develops in bogs or swamps by the chemical or biochemical oxidation of iron carried in solution. In general, bog ores consist primarily of iron oxyhydroxides, commonly goethite (FeO(OH)).. Iron-bearing groundwater typically emerges as a iron is oxidized to ferric hydroxide upon encountering the oxidizing environment of Missing: North Carolina.

Work performed under grants from United States Department of Peat deposits of North Carolina book, DE-ACFC, DE-ACET, and North Carolina Energy : Fuel-grade peat deposits cover aboutacres ( sq mi) in coastal North Carolina with total resources of about million tons of moisture-free peat.
Of this total, aboutacres ( sq mi) with million tons are underlain by peat greater than 4 ft thick. Technical Report: Peat deposits of the Carolina Bays of North Carolina. Peer reviewed only Published between: Published from year: and Published to year.
Peat is a brown to black, unconsolidated deposit of partially decomposed and disintegrated plant material that has accumulated in water-saturated environments, such as swamps, marshes, bogs, and fens. Because the location, thickness, quantity, and quality of peat deposits of the United States was known only in a general way.
These deposts formed in the p years in swamps or pocosins, Carolina bays, and river flood plains. Most of the peat occurs at the surface with no overburden. The peat ranges from 1 to 15 feet thick and averages feet thick.
The largest deposits are in the Albemarle-Pamlico peninsula and the Dismal : () 4 A map showing the location of North Carolina's peat deposits and a chart showing the distribution of North Carolina's peat may be found in Appendix E of this report.
The map and the chart were presented to the committee by Roy L. Ingram. Stanford Libraries' official online search tool for books, media, journals, databases, government documents and more.

The deep peat deposits around Lake Mattamuskeet are known to burn following lightning strikes during dry periods (Ingram, ).Regional oral history makes reference to Lake Mattamuskeet originating from a fire that burned for thirteen months (Barefoot, ).Whitehead () hypothesized the origin of Lake Drummond as being from a deep peat burn, which is located km north Cited by: 9.

Just west of the peat deposit is the north-south trending Arapahoe sand ridge (Fig. 2) (Daniels and others, ) with an elevation of 40 to 50 feet. The eastern front of the sand ridge is the Suffolk scarp with a toe elevation of about 20 feet. Miscellaneous pocosin peat deposits of North Carolina: Gull Rock; Van Swamp; Bay City - Gum Swamp.
Open-grounds pocos in Hofmann Forest; Angola Swamp; Holly Shelter; Green Swamp. America's Bog People. When most of us think of bog bodies, we think of northwestern Europe—Ireland, say, or Denmark. But North America has its peat bogs, too, and some of them contain the remarkably well-preserved remains of ancient people.
One site in particular stands out as America's premier bog-body site: Windover. Important peat areas in the southern states of Florida and North Carolina in the USA are also included. In Central Africa there are organic soils at high altitudes (over 2 m).
It is debatable whether such soils with an almost temperate climate should be regarded as tropical peats, even though they are geographically found within tropics. The mission of the North Carolina Geological Survey is to provide unbiased and technically accurate applied earth science information to address societal needs.
This includes geologic maps, mineral resource and geochemical information, topographic maps and digital products, and earth science education initiatives.
The agency examines, surveys Phone: () A bog or bogland is a wetland that accumulates peat, a deposit of dead plant material—often mosses, and in a majority of cases, sphagnum moss.
It is one of the four main types of wetlands. Other names for bogs include mire, quagmire, and muskeg; alkaline mires are called g: North Carolina. Whils the greater number of these areas of Peat and Muck, and usually the most extensive tracts, have been found in the cooler, humid regions of the Northeastern and North Central States, yet there are extensive deposits in the lower lying swampy sections of the Coastal Plains region and even some large deposits within the flood plains of some.
Peat is an organic soil type with properties of high compressibility and high water content. Peat deposits are often unsuitable for supporting structures of any kind due to their susceptibility to cause a number of geo-engineering problems, such as settlement, slope instability and soil amplification.
There are peatlands in Turkey, although these are not so Cited by: 1.In this study, pocosin peat in eastern North Carolina was used to track the sources of atmospherically deposited trace elements. Peat chronology Author: Jingyuan Sun.Pink variety of garnet unique in North America to North Carolina.
Pale pink rhodolite was reported in Asheville in and discovered in during mining for ruby corundum in the Cowee Valley. A mixture of 2/3 pyrope garnet to 1/3 almandine garnet, it was named for its color’s resemblance to the blooms of rhododendron.
