LAMMIN-SUO PEATLAND STATION

In the Soviet Union, swamps were intensively studied and developed for peat extraction, so a network of observation stations and posts in the swamps appeared in the country. But with the development of rich hydrocarbon deposits of oil and gas, the need to extract peat disappeared, and after the collapse of the USSR, the observation network began to shrink. Of the 12 peatland stations and 26 posts, two remained by 2021. One of them is the Lammin-Suo station in the Leningrad region. 

Based on long-term observations, scientists will be able to find out how the swamp will change in the future and how this will affect the climate.
