NH2804 : Peat sequence Loch Lundie

taken 11 years ago, near to Munerigie, Highland, Great Britain

Peat sequence Loch Lundie
Peat sequence Loch Lundie
Loch Lundie one of the peat sections, this with surface horizon and fissured older peat that has also been subsurface eroded on eluviated weathered mineral material to grey base horizon, fragment of rock as boulder, it is presumed much of this form is related to boulder clay basement and a long sequence of peat formation, slump and erosion and then differing basin peat formation on this. Peat, this being the dry 2006 2007 period, very low reservoir, will shrink back, so the actual state of this during wet weather and its original form would be interesting, one presumes it would fill out and be higher with substantive flows to the Loch marsh basin down the slope. Above the basin rises up to the col and the ridges, the catchment is reasonably large for this confluence zone.
