Development of an innovative methodology for the measurement of organic carbon turnover in forest and agricoltural soils by means of Accelerator Mass Spectrometry

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The quantification of soil organic carbon mean residence time represents, to date, one of the main driving variables involved in the definition of Carbon sequestration potentials of an agricultural / forest system over long time-scales. This issue is of paramount importance in view of the prediction of future climate scenarios and climate change mitigation in place. The 14C, naturally present in the soil in organic form, allows the high-precision determination of its dynamics without the necessity to repeat measurements of its contents over time. The topic of this research grant will be the development of analytical methods for the determination of levels of radiocarbon in micro-samples of soil (<0.5 mgC) and fractions (i.e. portions of soil characterised by homogeneous residence time basis) and the determination of the average residence times by means of the development of innovative modelling methodologies

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
