Dear Colleagues,

This session will be of interest to those exploring soil organic matter in a changing world. Please see below.

We invite abstracts to our session “Soil organic matter: mechanisms for accumulation, loss, and retention in a changing world” at the AGU Fall 2017 Meeting. This session will focus on empirical and modeling studies of soils and carbon: storage potential, mechanisms of stabilization/ destabilization/ long term storage, and ecosystem vulnerability. Isotopic, geochemical, spectroscopic novel techniques that probe deeper into the fate of organic matter across spatial and temporal scales are especially encouraged.

Invited Speakers (Confirmed):

Ron Amundson - University of California, Berkeley
Mark Waldrop - US Geological Survey, Menlo Park, CA

The deadline for abstract submission is Wednesday, 2 August 2017. Abstracts can be submitted at https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm17/preliminaryview.cgi/Session27344
