|English term or phrase: A bog|
|soaks and marshes in forest, streams flowing slowly, and bogs|
This sentence appears in a table about various types of landscape in Kalimantan, Indonesia.
|rawa gambut, paya gambut|
Per definition, bog: wetland with acid peaty soil, typically dominated by peat moss.
So, we can simply say that it is a wetland (rawa) of peat (gambut). As supported by the following ref:
Bog; lahan rawa yang ditutupi gambut yang tidak memiliki aliran air masuk maupun keluar secara nyata, yang bisa mendukung proses acidophilic mosses khususnya spagnum.
paya gambut is just a synonym of rawa gambut.
