The Role of Runoff and Erosion on Soil Carbon Stocks: From Soilscapes to Landscape Workshop, October 20-21, 2015 at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana

Spots are still available, register by September 27, 2015!

This CUAHSI Instrumentation Training course is designed to inform participants about the state-of-the-art instrumentation and measurements that are available for quantifying carbon dynamics in Intensively Managed Landscapes (IMLs) from the soil profile scale to the landscape scale. This course will examine the key processes that define carbon budget in IMLs, which include erosion, litter incorporation into the soil profile, microbial activity/ respiration, and stabilization in aggregates. Click here for more information and to register for this course. 

Course is aimed at graduate students and early career scientists with backgrounds in hydropedology, soil erosion, soil biogeochemistry, ecology, field methods, modeling, sensor technology, and/or analytical methods. Travel support is available to graduate students and post-docs to attend the workshop! 

Workshop participants are also invited to attend the Critical Zone Science, Sustainability, and Services in a Changing World Conference at Purdue University October 22-24, 2015. Click here for more information on the conference and workshop.
