Wet forests at W part of Ķemeri Raised Bog

Probably already at the end of the 19th century the first drainage was established in the forests on the southwest margin of Ķemeri Raised Bog. The following vast drainage in 1964 and the reconstruction of drainage system in 1974 significantly altered the hydrological regime of these formerly wet forests.
