Post-land abandonment management through shrub clearing practices as a tool for enhancing soil quality and carbon storage.

Land abandonment is one of the primary causes of soil erosion in the Mediterranean mid-mountains. This study is part of the MICINN's MANMOUNT program, and it has been a key factor in carbon dynamic change since intervention, as well as an increase in carbon storage and concentration with management.

How do leaf phenology and microclimate influence carbon storage dynamics along the vertical canopy gradient of mature trees?

Tree crown leaves experience a variety of microclimates, particularly in light availability. In sunlit and shaded twigs of individual trees, the amount and seasonality of the non-structural carbohydrate pool can therefore be estimated. At the Swiss Canopy Crane II facility near Basel, Switzerland, we monitored the NSC content in twigs from the top and bottom crowns of mature trees from 9 species in a temperate mixed forest throughout the year 2020. In three seasons, the timing of budbreak was consistent across those trees' canopy depths and continuously monitored the light environment with loggers in various canopy positions. Despite apparent differences in light availability, top and lower crown twigs were similar in terms of seasonal NSC dynamics between upper and lower canopy, but not so much in the late fall. Further studies of carbon assimilation and the ratio of carbon source to sink tissues along these vertical canopy gradients will help to better analyze those findings and get a better picture of how carbon storage is controlled in mature trees.

Are carbon-storing soils more sensitive to climate change? A laboratory evaluation for agricultural temperate soils.

In order to avoid future soil carbon losses, it's important to determine the sensitivity of soil organic carbon under storage conditions in reaction to rising soil moisture, temperature, and frequent dry-wet cycles. Soil samples were incubated in the laboratory under different temperatures, variable humidity conditions, and under dry-wet cycles. While dry-wet cycles stimulated CO2 flushes, they did not contribute to soil carbon mineralization in relation to wet controls. Overall, the additional SOC held under alternative management options was not more sensitive to climate change than the existing SOC.

Evolution of Uncertainty in Terrestrial Carbon Storage in Earth System Models from CMIP5 to CMIP6

The spatial and temporal variations in terrestrial carbon storage play a vital part in regulating future climate change. We investigated the unknown source of terrestrial carbon storage in 22 ESMs that participated in phases 5 and 6 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project based on various global datasets and a traceability analysis. We found that the decreased intermodel spread in land carbon storage decreased significantly from more accurate simulations of NPP among ESMs from CMIP5 to CMIP6, mainly due to improved decomposing terrestrial carbon storage into net primary production and ecosystem carbon residence time. Moreover, the refurbished u03c4 E became the primary catalyst for intermodel migration in CMIP6 global land carbon storage. Overall, our analysis shows that CMIP6 models have greatly enhanced the terrestrial carbon cycle, with reduced model dissemination in global terrestrial carbon storage and less uncertain productivity.

Temperature effects on carbon storage are controlled by soil stabilisation capacities

C losses that may have been lower than anticipated have been reported. According to By's analysis of over 9,000 soil profiles from the World Soil Information Database, the extent to which temperature controls C storage in mineral soils is more or less vulnerable to climate warming is uncertain, and it is not known if the C stores in soils with large capacity to stabilizing C storage are more, or less susceptible to climate warming than those that store C storage in soils with higher dampness capacities. The difference in the effects of temperature on C storage in soils with varying stabilization capabilities may not be represented by an established Earth system model. Our findings indicate that there are stabilized pools of SOM in fine-textured soils that may be less sensitive to global warming than previously anticipated, but that less protected pools in coarse-textured soils could be more vulnerable to global warming than previously expected. ESMs may not be predicting accurately the potential magnitude of soil C losses in responses to climate warming or which stocks are the most vulnerable, considering the mismatches between data and model outputs.

Increasing topsoil and subsoil organic carbon storage with improved rotation in cropland-grassland agroecosystems

Soil organic carbon accumulation in agroecosystems is a promising way to simultaneously raise food safety and reduce climate change. To determine the soil C-sequestration risk, it is vital to arrive at reliable estimations of the current soil C-saturation level. We calculated the C-deficit in cropland and permanent grassland sites in western Switzerland based on a 30-year-old soil monitoring network that had established the C-deficit in croplands, established the reasons contributing to the C-deficit, established the causes responsible for the C-deficit, identified the causes, and concluded that grasslands can be used as C-saturated reference sites. PG also showed that saturation levels in the study area have not reached their C-saturation level, and that additional C could be stored in PG soil under optimal control. At both depths, the relationship between the proportion of TG in the rotation and SOC stocks in the topsoil and subsoil was steady and similar, revealing the robust ability of the subsoil to sequester C.

Assessing the Potential Vulnerability of Sedimentary Carbon Stores to Benthic Trawling within the UK EEZ

Within the literature, the effects of trawling-induced disturbance events on benthic ecosystems and communities are well documented; however, a knowledge gap exists regarding the effects of sedimentary carbon deposition in trawling operations. Our results show that the fjordic west coast of Scotland is one of the key areas where sedimentary carbon is most vulnerable to bottom trawling. These maps have been constructed within GIS using fuzzy set theory. ReferencesHughes, K. M. , Kaiser, M. J. , Jennings, S. , McConnaughey, R. A. , Collie, J. , Parma, A. , 2014. This natural carbon capital resource should be prioritized for future safeguarding steps to minimize environmental degradation and safeguard this natural carbon capital resource, according to our study, and according to our results, these organic trawling hotspots could be in danger of disturbance from benthic trawling, P. A systematic review protocol was used to investigate the effects of mobile bottom fishing on benthic biota.

Microbial and Abiotic Effects of Experimental Nitrogen Deposition on Dryland Soil Organic Carbon Storage

Nitrogen enrichment as a result of atmospheric nitrogen deposition has affected plant growth and microbial activity globally, contributing to a rise in soil organic carbon in several ecosystems. However, acidification in drylands, where organic carbon commonly associates with mineral surfaces via Ca-bridging, may also reduce mineral-associated organic carbon if Ca is leached. In this research, we investigated how experimental nitrogen deposition in drylands can have different soil organic carbon fractions, which can result in microbial and abiotic changes in Mediterranean shrub- and grassland ecosystems in Southern California, where two of the sites displayed significant nitrogen deposition. We investigated soil organic carbon fractions, soil extracellular enzyme production, microbial carbon stabilization effectiveness, and exchangeable Ca.

Explicit spatial modeling at the pore scale unravels the interplay of soil organic carbon storage and structure dynamics

The organization of soil aggregates plays a vital role in the turnover of particulate organic matter and vice versa. We use a process-based mechanistic model to explore the interaction between the dynamic assemblage of soil aggregates, POM turnover, and simultaneous soil surface properties in a spatially and temporally specific manner in this research. The simulations provided critical information regarding the sequestration of OM in soils, as well as the length of its temporal distribution. Our model helped us to determine the temporal evolution of the aggregate size distribution, the amount of OC in POM fractions of various ages, and the surface coverage.

Coastal Blue Carbon Storage, Sources and Accumulation in Gautami-Godavari (Coringa) Mangrove sediments

Organic carbon stocks, carbon accumulation rates, and organic matter sources in the sediments of the Gautami-Godavari mangrove ecosystem, Andhra Pradesh, India, were determined by the present research to help quantify and quantify this carbon sink. To determine the sedimentary organic matter sources in the Coringa mangrove complex, the carbon and nitrogen stable isotopic composition and elemental ratios of total organic carbon to total nitrogen have been used. Both Sedimentary Carbon Stock and Carbon Accumulation Rates vary among various locations and their values are highest in an area where mangroves are specifically affected by aquaculture effluents. The most of the sedimentary organic matter was found from non-mangrove sources such as algae, phytobenthos, and suspended particulate matter, according to a scatter plot on the difference between u03b413C and TOC/TN ratios.
