We designed a soil carbon monitoring system for New Zealand using country-specific land use and soil carbon information. The system pre-stratifies the country by soil type, climate, and land use. Soils were placed in six IPCC soil categories; Podzols were added as they are widespread throughout New Zealand. Temperature was stratified into two categories, each spanning 7 degrees C. Moisture categories were based on water balance, and included five categories. Temperature and moisture… CONTINUE READING
