School of Natural Resources Research Seminar Series

“Digging deeper: persistence and climate sensitivity of deep soil organic matter”

Date: Time: 3:30 pm–4:30 pm
Contact: Chris Chizinski,
Dr. Asmeret Asefaw Berhe, professor, Univeristy of California-Merced, Department of Life and Environmental Sciences.

Deep soil layers (below 30cm or A-horizon) account for up to 70% of the carbon (C) stored in soils. Decomposition of deep soil organic matter (SOM) contributes to surface carbon dioxide efflux, and is controlled by climate, soil physico-chemical properties, and geomorphology of the landscapes and associated hydrology.
