Abstract

Recent adavances in the field od digital terrain analysis and the avaibility of fine-resolution digital elevation models means that the relationship between the concentration of magnetic minerals in peat soils and topography can be explored using quantitative methods. Alport Moor is an ombotrophic peat moorland in the Peak District National Park, UK, where 24 peat cores were collected. Each core was analysed for mass specific magnetic susceptibility. The mapping results demonstrate that the contemporary concentration of magnetic minerals in the peat soils of Alport Moor is controlled by micro- and local-scale variations in water table position
