Overview

World soils contain about 1500 gigatons of organic carbon. This large carbon reserve can increase atmospheric concentrations of CO2 by soil misuse or mismanagement, or it can reverse the 'greenhouse' effect by judicious land use and proper soil management.
Soil Processes and the Carbon Cycle describes soil processes and their effects on the global carbon cycle while relating soil properties to soil quality and potential and actual carbon reserves in the soil. In addition, this book deals with modeling the carbon cycle in soil, and with methods of soil carbon determinations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Describes soil processes that affect the global carbon cycle by retaining or releasing some of the 1,500 gigatons of organic carbon held in the soils of the world. Relates soil properties to soil quality and to potential and actual carbon reserves in the soil. Also addresses modeling the carbon cycle in soil and methods for determining soil carbon. The 41 papers comprise one of three volumes presenting the proceedings of the July 1996 symposium Carbon Sequestration in Soils held at Ohio State University. Of interest to scientists in such fields as environmental and soil science, agronomy, geography, ecology, geology, climatology, and agriculture. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
