Abstract

Peat deposits in southern and western Maine were investigated for their estimated potential as peat resources suitable for energy, horticultural, and agricultural uses. Fifty-six sketch maps illustrate the areal extent, thickness, and amount of commercial-quality peat. The total yield is estimated at 27,736,400 short tons air-dried peat.
