Project Description/Abstract

Judicious agricultural land management planning requires understanding relationships between soil and site variables, including factors related to vegetation, geology, climate, relief, and land use. CART funding supported the collection of topsoil samples from a typical land uses types and topographic landscape positions in central Spain during summer of 2006. Chemical and physical properties were analyzed late summer and in the fall of 2006. The object of this project is to identify differences in carbon cycling rates under different land management types that could impact land restoration, agricultural productivity and potential carbon-exchange policy.
