Latest Soil carbon Stories
Transparency Market Research has published a new report titled "Global Biochar Market: Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020" to its report store.
Just how much Arctic permafrost will thaw in the future and how fast heat-trapping carbon dioxide will be released from those warming soils is a topic of lively debate among climate scientists.
Clemson University scientists are shedding new light on how invasion by exotic plant species affects the ability of soil to store greenhouse gases. The research could have far-reaching implications for how we manage agricultural land and native ecosystems.
A new study reveals that fungi, not plants, are the real champions in the battle against climate change.
According to new research, newly forested lands show a marked increase in the amount of carbon that they trap as trees begin to take root and grow – a fact which could help to curb the effects of global climate change.
University of Illinois professor of soil science Kenneth Olson has used data collected over a 20-year period at Dixon Springs, Ill., to develop a new protocol for more accurately measuring the carbon removed from the atmosphere and subsequently sequestered in the soil as SOC.
Fertilizing one's lawn is considered a necessary practice, as is with most agricultural crops.
Underappreciated player in carbon storage should be included in global change models, researcher says
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) scientists have found that carbon is stored in the soils and sediments of the Ganges-Brahmaputra basin for a surprisingly long time, making it likely that global warming could destabilize the pool of carbon there and in similar places on Earth, potentially increasing the rate of CO2 release into the atmosphere.
