Their findings are based on a field experiment that, for the first time, explored what happens to organic carbon trapped in soil when all soil layers are warmed, which in this case extend to a depth of 100 centimeters. The scientists discovered that warming both the surface and deeper soil layers at three experimental plots increased the plots' annual release of CO2 by 34 to 37 pct over non-warmed soil. Much of the CO2 originated from deeper layers, indicating that deeper stores of carbon are more sensitive to warming than previously thought.
Previously, the majority of field-based soil warming experiments only focused on the top five to 20 centimeters of soil. Experts estimate soils below 20 centimeters in depth contain more than 50 pct of the planet's stock of soil organic carbon.
The need to better understand the response of all soil depths to warming is underscored by projections that, over the next century, deeper soils will warm at roughly the same rate as surface soils and the air. In addition, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change simulations of global average soil temperature, using a "business-as-usual" scenario in which carbon emissions rise in the decades ahead, predict that soil will warm 4 degrees C by 2100.
The findings suggest the degree to which soil organic carbon influences climate change may be currently underestimated.
"There's an assumption that carbon in the subsoil is more stable and not as responsive to warming as in the topsoil, but we've learned that's not the case. Deeper soil layers contain a lot of carbon, and our work indicates it's a key missing component in our understanding of the potential feedback of soils to the planet's climate."
The research was supported by the Department of Energy's Office of Science. (Source: Lawrence Berkeley Lab., 13 Mar., 2017) Contact: LBL, Caitlin Hicks Pries, Berkeley Lab Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division, (510) 495-8046, CEHPries@lbl.gov, www.lbl.gov
