Modelling the impact of pore space distribution on carbon turnover


  • Kuka, K.
  • Franko, U.
  • Rühlmann, J.


A new modelling approach has been developed for carbon turnover in arable soils. The rationale for the new model is based on the hypothesis that long-term stabilization of carbon in soil is mainly a function of its accessibility or its localisation within the soil pore space.
