Improving estimates of carbon inventories in soils is currently hindered by lack of a rapid analysis method for total soil carbon. A rapid, accurate, and precise method that could be used in the field would be a significant benefit to researchers investigating carbon cycling in soils and dynamics of soil carbon in global change processes. We tested a new(More)

Estimating invenaccompany them (Scholes and Noble, 2001; Breshears tories and detecting changes in the soil C pool have remained elusive, largely because the spatial distribution of soil C varies(More)

Material Disposal Area G is the primary low-level radioactive waste disposal site at Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, and is adjacent to Pueblo of San Ildefonso lands. Pueblo residents and Los Alamos scientists are concerned about radiological doses resulting from uptake of Area G radionuclides by mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) and Rocky(More)

The use of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to detect a variety of elements in soils has been demonstrated and instruments have been developed to facilitate these measurements. The ability to determine nitrogen in soil is also important for applications ranging from precision farming to space exploration. For terrestrial use, the ideal situation(More)
