Abstract. Soil erosion has been discussed intensively but controversial both as a significant source or a significant sink of atmospheric carbon possibly explaining the gap in the global carbon budget. One of the major points of discussion has been whether or not carbon is degraded and mineralized to CO 2 during detachment, transport and deposition of soil material. By combining the caesium-137 ( 137 Cs) approach (quantification of erosion rates) with stable carbon isotope signatures (process… CONTINUE READING
