We know more about the movement of celestial bodies than about the soil underfoot!

Our group mainly focus on the soil C cycling process and mechanism (Fig 1) , and Ecological and environmental effects of plastic film mulching.

Net N2O production from soil particle size fractions and its response to changing temperature


Previous studies demonstrated that finer soil particles have smaller rates of CO2 emission but  larger Q10 values (the proportionate increase in the rate for a warming of 10 oC) than coarser particles. However, it has not been tested whether there is a regular pattern for rates and Q10 for N2O emission  (net  production)  across  soil  particle  size  fractions, ...
