Identifying soil with a large potential to accumulate organic carbon (OC) could maximise the mitigation benefits of carbon (C) sequestration and help prioritise resources to achieve increases in soil OC. The purpose of this laboratory incubation experiment was to determine if an upper limit to OC accumulation in soil was approached with increasing C input in basalt- and granite-derived soil. For each parent material, two soil layers were compared to observe OC accumulation in soil with a high...[Show more]
