Soil secrets - boosting carbon storage through land use
Nebraska Ag Connection - 04/01/2024

On April 4, 2024, Michael Kaiser, an Assistant Professor for Applied Soil Chemistry at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, will lead a seminar titled "Impact of Land Use on the Storage and Turnover of Soil Organic Carbon: Stories from the Subsoil. "

This event is scheduled from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm in Keim Hall, Room 150, located at 1825 N 38th St, Lincoln NE. The seminar aims to shed light on one of the crucial factors influencing soil's ability to store organic carbon: land use change.

Kaiser's research, encompassing over 20 sites across Nebraska, delves into the effects of various land uses such as cropland, native prairie, and forest on soil carbon storage and turnover deep into the subsoil layers.

By analyzing soil samples up to 3 meters deep, the study examines carbon storage levels, carbon fractions important for ecology, microbial community structures, and the characteristics of soil minerals.

This comprehensive approach not only fills existing knowledge gaps but also paves the way for developing land use strategies that could significantly enhance long-term carbon storage beyond the topsoil layer.

Targeted audiences for this insightful seminar include alumni, faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, the public, staff, and undergraduate students.

This event promises to be a cornerstone for individuals interested in agronomy, horticulture, and environmental sustainability, providing valuable data and discussions on improving land management practices for better carbon sequestration.
