Total, hot water extractable, and oxidation-resistant carbon in sandy hydromorphic soils-analysis of a 220-year chronosequence

Abstract

Soil organic carbon stocks decrease after conversion of soils from pasture to cropland. It has been assumed that this applies especially to mineral hydromorphic soils. In this paper we evaluate hot-water extractable carbon (Chwe) as a measure for detecting long-term changes in the SOM following land use change. Furthermore, we assess whether a treatment of… (More)
