Rebekka Artz

Research Leader
Ecological Sciences
T: +44 (0)344 928 5428 (*)
Rebekka is a research leader working on peatland ecosystem functioning and other high organic carbon content soils. She has over 20 years of experience on research projects that span multiple disciplines including ecology, atmospheric sciences, remote sensing, ecohydrology, social sciences and in bridging science and policy. She currently co-ordinates multiple, high value, and long-term research projects. She has authored over 60 peer-reviewed publications, as well as numerous research reports, two book chapters and interactive media content (such as included in the Virtual Peatland Pavilion for the UNFCCC COP26). Please visit the Publications section for details of these outputs.

She currently leads multiple large scale research projects (see Research) that aim to deliver better tools to understand the impacts of climate change on many aspects of peatland functioning and to evaluate the impacts of partial or full rewetting and other management strategies for peatland management. This includes the overall scientific oversight of the developing SCO2FLUX network of long-term peatland monitoring sites (funded via a series of Capital equipment grants of £2.5mi from RESAS and Peatland ACTION over the period 2018-2022).

Rebekka serves as Assistant Editor for the European Journal of Soil Science, and contributes on the Technical Advisory Board of the UK Peatland Code and the Peatland Scientific and Technical Advisory Group for Scottish Government.  She was included in the ENDS Power List 2022. The wider peatland team was recognised in the 2023 Nature of Scotland Conservation Science award.

Rebekka was a Co-I on the Implementation report for peatlands into the UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory, led by Prof Chris Evans at UKCEH, which found that the overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of peatlands could exceed the equivalent of around 20 megatonnes of CO2 each year.
