SoilCET 2024

Quantification of organic carbon and characterisation of soil organic matter at plot and regional scales


Numerous analytical approaches are available to quantify soil carbon and to characterise soil organic matter. Regardless of the robustness of the analytical approach, sampling strategies should be relevant to allow assessment of the spatial heterogeneity and representativeness of the measurements. This session will discuss problems with existing soil sampling strategies and explore novel analytical approaches for quantifying and characterizing organic and inorganic carbon. Contributions will focus on new proxies of soil carbon and organic matter, on soil sampling strategies and spatial assessment in various contexts of soil management and pollution, on remote or proxy sensing, and on concepts that allow to better describe soil organic matter in terms of lability/stability.
