What Factors Control Carbon Mineralization and Flux in Bog Soils and How Would These Soils Respond to Global Climate Change? - I. Introduction: What is a Bog. The word "bog," from the old Gaelic "bogach," is commonly used to refer to any stretch of waterlogged, swampy ground. The words, fen, moor, muskeg, peatland, and mire are also used to describe these areas, which can lead to some confusion over terminology. Specifically, a bog is "a peat accumulating wetland that has no significant inflows or outflows and supports acidophilic mosses, particularly sphagnum" (Gosselink and Mitsch 1993). The vast majority of bogs are located in the moist, cool boreal regions of North America and Eurasia....   [tags: Climate Bog Ecology Papers]

Different Theories Proposed to Account for the Iron Age Bog Bodies - There are numerous unanswered questions surrounding the Northern European Bog Bodies phenomenon including "How, or why, or even when, the bodies became immersed in quagmires." (Turner, R.C, Scaife, R.G (ed.),1995,p.169). Despite vast amounts of evidence there are still no easy answers that account for the Iron age bodies. However there are four main competing theories providing possible causes including: the Sacrifice theory, Punishment theory, Boundary theory and the Accidental death theory. All these competing theories will be further examined and critically analysed throughout this text allowing us to depict the most convincing and plausible solution for the mystery of the Iron Age Bog B...   [tags: sacrifice, punishment, boundary, accidental death]

Comparsion of the Thematic of Violence in Earlier and later Heaney - ... This could possibly be considered the most grotesque view on the troubles to date. The second part of the poem sees Heaney move from the ritual sacrifice of Tollund Man to the killings in Northern Ireland. He is comparing the unlawful killings in the Iron Age with that of the religious and political rebellion in his homeland. His merge of the Bogland in Denmark and his parish in to one word “Jutland” is perhaps the most intriguing part of the theme of violence in this poem. He states how his parish is like a foreign place and is tarnished with these killings....   [tags: bog, politics, leterature, conflict] 2472 words

Seamus Heaney as a Political Poet in Act of Union - Heaney is not typically a political poet, with nonpartisan themes prominent in his poetry. However, he breaks this image in Act of Union, along with Whatever You Say, Say Nothing, branching into more political themes. The cause of this was largely due to the Troubles in Ireland from the early 1960s, which largely affected Heaney due to his role as a Northern Irish poet. He was also pressured by many journalists on his view, which is described in Whatever You Say, Say Nothing. Although Act of Union is unmistakably one of Heaney’s most political poems, it subtly delivers the message of Heaney’s outlook on the Troubles through the dramatic monologue of England, introducing an ambiguous person...   [tags: Poetry of Seamus Heaney]

Analysis of Seamus Heaney's North - Analysis of Seamus Heaney's North The poet Keats wrote that “the only means of strengthening one’s intellect is to make up one’s own mind about nothing – to let the mind be a thoroughfare for all thought, not a select body”. That this may be an admirable aim for a poet, and especially so for one writing against a background of ethnic violence, is not in doubt. It is, however, extremely difficult to remain neutral when one identifies oneself with an ethnic party involved in conflict.
