Welcome to Winter Soil Processes
Identifying the biogeochemical drivers such as energy and nutrient delivery on winter microbial community composition, functions and dynamics is critical to establishing a mechanistic understanding of winter biogeochemical cycles.
Future climate uncertainties highlight the need to develop and couple cutting edge-experimental approaches to biogeochemical-hydrological models to identify and predict the major controls on subsurface biogeochemical processes and the associated metabolic potential during the non-growing season.
Arash Rafat and Dr. Fereidoun Rezanezhad have co-authored a new paper in Nature’sCommunications Earth & Environment projecting carbon emissions from peatlands over the non-growing season for the remainder of the 21st century using machine learning. Check out the paper here!
