Here we show that each year is higher-
The production of ground biomass resulted in the seasonal addition of unstable plant materials to the peatland ecosystem because of the low resistance of garbage.
Due to the higher decomposition rate and the larger DOC flux seasonal pattern, the net effect will be a smaller pool of garbage.
Conventional water treatment involving solidificationflocculation-
Vascular plants may hinder sedimentationderived DOC.
It has been proved that vascular plants-
The DOC obtained through these methods is more difficult to remove than the DOC obtained from Sphagnum, and at the same time it is not very susceptible to microbial mineralization until the treatment effect is achieved.
These results provide evidence that is intended to be renewed

Both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Park have chosen the site location near the current water collection management program.
For vascular plants, garbage is collected as dead biomass for standing.
The entire sods were collected for processing in the laboratory.
Mud coal samples were collected using spiral augur, and clay coal at a depth of 10-30 cuccm was used in the experiment.
It is a continuous process, and according to other studies, the 2-4 cuccm section below the tip of the head bone is treated as a representative of the \"garbage\" of fresh aging.
Samples of solidification optimization and laboratory decomposition experiments were collected from two sites in Exmoor National Park, UK; Aclands (51°07′54. 2″N 3°48′43. 3″W)
Elevation and Spooners about 450 m (51°07′23. 3″N 3°45′11. 8″W)
About 400 m above sea level.
The National Park contains a mixture of covered swamps, wet and dry wilderness, grasslands, and bush communities, given that the particular location is swamps, mainly samples of peat collected, about H7 on the Von Post scale, which indicates that there are only a few identifiable plants left in dark, sawed peat
Seven instrument sites with vertical gradients are set up near Postbridge (50°6′N; 3°90′W)
On 2014, Michael Bell of the University of Reading was at Dartmoor National Park.
The mud coal samples collected from these sites are approximately H6 on the Von Post scale, indicating that there are some reasonably good humor materials left over from the plant structure.

Purchased from filtration technology company a zero bag made of nylon monofilament (Germany)
In the size of 10 × 10 cm, use 0. 5u2009mm mesh.
Litterbags was installed on an elevation gradient, 36 metres above sea level at Site 2, 50 metres above sea level at Site 5, and 28 metres above sea level at site 7.
Record the temperature and water level depth every 15 minutes.
See for details.
From the range of depth to the water level, each type of garbage has experienced a period of time when the water level has gone up and down, thus representing the condition of the garbage that has recently died.
The vegetation collected from the site of Dartmoor used the above method for litterbag experiments.
Vegetation is air.
Dry to constant weight, then cut to 2 cm length and homogenize.
Litterbag is full of vegetation of about 3g except that 1g is enough to fill litterbag due to low density.
The bag is sealed with double stitching of nylon thread.
Five repetitions of each vegetation type were installed at a depth of about 10 cm, lower than the positively growing vegetation, and therefore in the litter layer of the dead branches.
After 10 months, collect and analyze the quality loss and water extraction DOC for garbage bags.
To assess the effect of flowers on the amount of waste DOC flux, samples were collected in August 2015.
The samples were separated into flower capsules and small branches.
After separation, the samples were homogenized and extracted for DOC, which was then analyzed for UV and fluorescence properties.
Subsamples with C and N contents were repeatedly analyzed.
About 2 grams dry-weight of air-

Glass bottles used to collect simulated rainfall.

Dry, which means the vegetation here is enough to fill the Buchner funnel.
Gently push the mud coal sample into the funnel, thus forming a seal, which means that the rain must penetrate into the mud coal, rather than bypassing the funnel. Five sub-

Reverse osmosis (RO)
Treated water has been used for similar degradation studies and is used in samples so that organic carbon is not added to the samples.
Since the samples are collected from the field and are in contact with the garbage, there is no need for the soil to be vaccinated with microorganisms, as there may be a suitable decomposing community.
At the end of the six-week simulation, the sample was air-
Weigh after drying.
The DOC is then extracted from the air-dried sample.
Using a ratio of about 20:1 RO treated water to samples, DOC was extracted from soil and vegetation samples.

Although many classes of DBPs have been formed during the water treatment process, this study focuses on trihalogen methane (THM)

For solidification experiments, a series of doses and pH values were tested using the us epa \"guidelines for strengthening solidification and strengthening Precipitation softening\" and the methods found in ASTM method 203508 as a guide.
This includes finding \"decreasing points\", that is, adding further 10 mg l condensate to remove points less than 0. 3u2009mg l DOC.
These doses were then used to test the pH in the range of 4. 5–6.

After precipitation, filter through the Whatman qualitative secondary filter to remove the remaining trivia before measuring the DOC.
Iron sulfate is used as the curing agent, and sodium hydroxide is added to stabilize the pH value.
Solidification conditions include a quick mixing of one minute at 100 rpm, a slow mixing of 30 min at 30 rpm, and then settling for one hour.
Initial dose and pH tests were performed repeatedly.
The final test is in triplicate.
For fluorescence analysis, samples were scanned at excitation wavelength at intervals of 5 nm between 220 and 4 nm and observed at intervals of 2 nm between 300 and 6 nm using different Eclipse fluorescence spectrometer
An R script has been developed based on published scripts for processing data and standardizing it as a Raman scattering peak for RO water.
