ESCI Seminar: Alain Plante, University of Pennsylvania Title: Green carbon, black carbon, white carbon: Thermal analysis in soil organic matter research Abstract : Quantification of soil carbon stocks and fluxes remains one of the largest uncertainties in Earth system models (ESMs), and is important in assessments of ecosystem functioning. Analytical thermal analysis techniques are increasingly used to quantify and characterize three distinct pools of carbon in soils: carbonates (white carbon), pyrogenic carbon (black carbon) and soil organic matter (green carbon).…Find out more »
