   FIG. D1. (a) Peat accretion rate vs. distance from Hillsboro canal (the source of P for the WCA-2A enrichment gradient). (b) Water column TP vs. distance from Hillsboro canal. (c) Rearrangement of (a) and (b) to solve for net peat accretion rate as a function of TP in water. (d) Phosphorus accumulation in peat as a function of distance from the Hillsboro Canal. (e) Simulated phosphorus binding constant, an, in peat as a function of TP concentration.
