Acid sulfate soils (ASS) usually contain large amounts of organic matter which can be potential sources of greenhouse gas emissions. The aim of this thesis is to determine the GHGs in ASS from coastal wetlands due to sea level rise in Australia and from agricultural land due to the post-glacial rebound by isostatic uplift in Finland. The objectives were to identify the effects of inundation on GHGs and soil chemistry in coastal acid sulfate soils (CASS) with sea level rise with different vegetation types in southern Australia and determine the effect of lime (CaCO3) addition on ASS in agriculture land.
