Soils and Carbon: Stabilization and Permanence

ENR 7530
Soil carbon, globally, is larger than both atmospheric and terrestrial biomass carbon stocks, but how permanent is soil carbon and in what forms? Minerals play an important role in carbon stability and permanence. Students gain experience on methods to investigate soil carbon stabilization, mineralogy and soil carbon permanence, and mechanistic understanding of organo-mineral interactions.
