PhD opportunity: Dynamics of organic and inorganic carbon in carbonate soils

The Rock-Eval® (RE) thermal analysis was developed at IFPEN during the 1970’s as a standard benchmark tool in oil exploration, and became more and more frequently used during the last 20 years in soil science in order to characterize soil organic matter and its thermal stability. While soil organic carbon (C) is a well-established research topic in agriculture and climate concerns, inorganic C remains disregarded.
