PEAT is an informal group of researchers from Toulouse, using peat as a past environmental archive.



PEAT members are using peat as environmental archives at different time and spatial scales to investigate past environmental changes (climate, pollution, human...).

Project Location

PEAT members are working in more or less all the geographic zones where peat accumulation can be found, wihth a focus on Sphagnum ombrotrophic mires found in Europe, Canada and Patagonia (including Tierra del Fuego).


PEAT has many facilities dedicated to the studies of peat and sediment cores.
