Macrocharcoal concentration and fire peak of the KP peat core from the Kampar Peninsula, Riau, Sumatra Indonesia


A multi-proxy palaeoecological investigation including pollen and spore, loss-on-ignition, total organic carbon, stable carbon isotope and micro- and macrocharcoal was carried out on two peat cores collected from coastal area in eastern Sumatra. The study was conducted to understand the development and dynamics of the coastal peatlands, the Kampar Peninsula in Sumatra. Macrocharcoal analysis was conducted following protocols in Rhodes (1998) and Stevenson and Haberle (2005). Loss-on-ignition analysis was carried out following (Chambers et al., 2011).
