Soil organic carbon (SOC) is vital for the global carbon cycle and balance. In order to study the factors that affect the changes of SOC at different levels (0 ~ 20 cm, 20 ~ 40 cm) in degraded areas and continuous water supply area (3 years, 5 years, 7 years), Phragmites communis wetland of the Yellow River Delta were sampled. The results showed that the upper soil layer (0-20cm) had more SOC than the lower soil layer (20-40cm) in the restored sites. The SOC increased in the 0-20cm soil layer… CONTINUE READING
