1. #NgarachuSoil
The study of soil organic carbon levels is important in understanding optimal #SoilHealth when dealing with #conservation.

This involves both the chemical and physical properties of the #soil
2. #NgarachuSoil
Within #StokeParkEstate, an investigation was carried out to find out whether Total Organic Carbon (TOC), and Total Carbon (TC) vary in land type;

Woodland and Meadow🏞️
3. #NgarachuSoil
It was found that both TOC and TC levels had a visible dip from woodland to meadow between the 0 and 20m distance that was measured.

However, the results did not show a consistent decrease in both variables in the 25metres measured from woodland to meadow.

THREAD: What happens to #carbon once it's sequestered in soils? How can we lock it in & ensure it doesn't return to the atmosphere as CO2?

Soil scientists use "fractionation" methods for that^. Fractionation tells us about different pools of C-some stay forever & some are quick
Consider it like food for the body.

Some of the energy in your food will get used to build your bones-it stays there & is permanent. Some of the energy gets digested & respired as CO2 when you breathe. Not permanent, but you still need it. & some is intermediate-stored as fat.
In soils, we call the permanent fraction MAOM (minerally associated organic matter). This is the soil C that gets stuck to minerals & stays forever.

The faster fraction is called POM (particulate organic matter). This pool is a lot more dynamic

Today’s the day! Join our chief scientist @j_zelikova, as well as @SenWhitehouse, @RepPaulTonko to *get the dirt* on what’s happening in the future of soil carbon storage. bit.ly/3bepUsh
Fantastic remarks from @RepPaulTonko and @SenWhitehouse on the need for negative emissions technologies to meet climate goals, and the critical role agricultural soils play in achieving this.
"For the farming community, this [soil carbon storage] could be a win-win-win situation." -- @RepPaulTonko

🚜🌎💚 Land use, #farming & how this impacts on #ClimateChange is under scrutiny

Today, the Committee on Climate Change (@thecccuk) have launched their new Land Use report

What does it say, does it focus on the right things and is it ambitious enough? ow.ly/HSDC50y2HXK
@theCCCuk @UKSustain @SoilsAlliance @SusFoodTrust @LandworkersUK @FOLUCoalition @GreenerUK_ @GreenAllianceUK @WCL_News @DefraGovUK @NFUtweets The report comes at a time when #farming, #landuse and its impact on #climatechange is under the spotlight like never before.

This @theCCCuk report will be a major influence on what farmers will be rewarded for doing to adapt to climate change. ow.ly/HSDC50y2HXK
Nature must be given equal emphasis in shaping the future of post-#Brexit #farm support, as #farming and #landuse is also the primary driver of global #insect decline and the #biodiversity crash.
