Stable carbon isotopes as an indicator for soil degradation in an alpine environment (Urseren Valley, Switzerland).

Abstract

Analyses of soil organic carbon (SOC) content and stable carbon isotope signatures (delta(13)C) of soils were assessed for their suitability to detect early stage soil erosion. We investigated the soils in the alpine Urseren Valley (southern central Switzerland) which are highly impacted by soil erosion. Hill slope transects from uplands (cambisols) to… (More)
