Storage , patterns and controls of soil organic carbon in the Tibetan grasslands

  title={Storage , patterns and controls of soil organic carbon in the Tibetan grasslands},
  • Published 2008
The soils of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau store a large amount of organic carbon, but the magnitude, spatial patterns and environmental controls of the storage are little investigated. In this study, using data of soil organic carbon (SOC) in 405 profiles collected from 135 sites across the plateau and a satellite-based dataset of enhanced vegetation index (EVI) during 2001–2004, we estimated storage and spatial patterns of SOC in the alpine grasslands. We also explored the relationships between… CONTINUE READING
