Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the interrelationships between peat and water in a large area of tropical peatland in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia by focusing on fire susceptibility as influenced by changes in groundwater levels modelled with the SIMGRO hydropedological model. The influence of relatively dry and wet years on fire susceptibility is demonstrated as well as the influence of monthly fluctuations in rainfall. In addition, the vegetative restoration potential of degraded peatlands is assessed in relation to flooding depth and duration
