Modelling global change impacts on the soil enviroment

Export citation

The following research protocol was developed as part of the global ASB (Alternatives to slash-and-burn) project, to allow comparison of data collected in Indonesia (Lampung,Jambi), Cameroon, Brazil and Peru. The data collected can be used: - directly to assess the current C stock in above - and below- ground pools; - to extrapolate to the 'time-averaged C stock' of a land-use system; - to initialise the CENTURY (or similar) simulation model for C, N and P dynamics of the various pools of organic matter; and/or - compare biodiversity and profitability assessments with C stock data to study trade-offs among global environmental benefits and private incentives to the farmer.
