Lead Institution: University of Vermont
Principal Investigator: Aimee Classen
Soil carbon (C) feedbacks to the atmosphere remain one of the greatest areas of uncertainty in future climate predictions, largely due to an inadequate representation of three key factors in ecosystem models -- soil organic matter (SOM) chemistry,...
Lead Institution: Indiana University - Bloomington
Principal Investigator: Jonathan Raff
The overall goal of this proposal is to investigate how plant-microbe-mineral interactions drive emissions of reactive nitrogen from soils. Fluxes of reactive nitrogen oxides [NOy = NO + NO2 + HONO] from soil are poorly studied due to their highly...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: John Loring
The manner in which soil organic carbon (SOC) binds to and reacts with mineral surfaces affects SOC (bio)degradation, SOC mobility, soil wettability, mineral dissolution, and the bioavailability of essential elements and contaminants. While SOC-...
Lead Institution: University of California, Merced
Principal Investigator: Asmeret Berhe
Soil organic phosphorus (P) has been identified as a pivotal component of bioavailable P, especially in late stages of ecosystem development. Organic P turnover rate is affected by the stabilization ability of the soil (i.e. organic matter, minerals...
