Title(s):Main Title: Spatial Patterns of SOC Turnover
Description(s):Abstract: Soils can be extremely heterogeneous with regard to organic C content and turnover. In the context of climate change it is necessary to gain better understanding of factors regulating soil organic carbon turnover (SOC). Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, especially CO2 are the main reasons for climate change and global warming. Soils are both, a sink and a source for atmospheric CO2. Anyway, sequestration of atmospheric CO2 in agriculturally used ecosystems offers a possibility to mitigate total net fluxes of soil borne CO2. The turnover of SOC can be highly heterogeneous on a local or even on a field scale, something which is caused by the variability of its regulating parameters. In this study I am going to focus on heterogeneous, agriculturally used land in a warm, temperate climate. The first objective (i) is to capture the spatiotemporal patterns of potential SOC turnover and to identify effective parameters (quantity and quality of litter input, inorganic soil properties like contents of clay, oxides, pH, moisture, temperature and rock fragments content) regulating the turnover of stabilized soil organic carbon pools on the field scale. The second objective (ii) covers the determination of spatial patterns of actual SOC turnover rates by δ13C natural abundance isotopic labeling. The introduction of maize to a heterogeneous test site will allow me to determine the partition of fresh C4 biomass to the different SOC pools. Incubation studies with soil samples from this test site provide a direct link between the potentially biodegradable C and the actual turnover in the field (see objective i). The third objective (iii) aims to identify the seasonal variability of particulate organic matter (POM). In summary, elucidating mechanisms regulating the spatiotemporal turnover of SOM to improve the predictability of carbon turnover models is the intention of my work.
