Lecture: Soil organic matter and greenhouse gases II (BGCP5) und (GCE:B6a) (28358)

SS 2024
Tu.: 08:00-10:00, H6, GEO

Eva Lehndorff, Werner Borken

Lecture, 2 ECTS

Starting date: 16 April 2024

Learning Objectives: Knowledge about the storage and loss of carbon in and from soil is crucial to mitigate climate warming. This module offers insights into processes and mechanisms that lead to carbon sequestration in soil. We look at soils from different climate regions, and learn about soil carbon accumulation and greenhouse gas emissions and how this is affected by climate change and land-use.

Course Content: 

Lecture: Carbon stocks in soil, mechanisms of carbon stabilisation in soil, influence of climate and land-use change. Characteristics of soil organic matter, the role of dissolved organic carbon compounds and greenhouse gas emissions.

Tutorial: Field day on carbon storage in soil. Lab week on carbon analyses in soil.
