Soil organic matter stabilization and sequestration

Date: 

2015

Summary: 

Soil organic matter is critical for soil productivity, water quality and balancing greenhouse gases. Yet, our understanding of its properties and dynamics is still scant. Particularly the modeling of its behavior under future global change including climate warming has proven to pose significant challenges. The current activities provide a path forward in taking critical hurdles in our understanding of the fine-scale distribution of organic matter in soil and how this generates new ways of modeling soil organic matter behavior.
