Belowground Biogeochemistry

This research seeks to improve understanding of soils – or belowground biogeochemistry – in the global climate system in order to inform predictive models. We conduct experiments to test and improve model representations of soil carbon processes. These field and lab experiments focus on microbial responses and feedbacks, geochemical stabilization, and nutrient cycling.
