Description

Abstract Text:
The geometry of soil pores (size, shape and connectivity) control key soil processes such as water movement and retention and nutrient cycling. Plants and microbes affect soil aggregation and, by extension, pore structure. Therefore, processes affecting the biotic component of the soil such as soil management and climate (i.e., precipitation regime and/or temperature) will impact the structure of soil pores. The effect of soil management and/or land use on soil structure has been studied for decades and there is abundant literature covering different soil and management types. On the other hand, the effect of climate is less understood and is likely to become an important subject in the coming decades due to anticipated changes in precipitation and carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere. This project will concentrate on investigating changes of soil pore structure along natural climatic gradients or in soils sampled in long-term experiments where one or more climatological variable was altered. We expect that results from this project will help formulate better models of soil processes, including models of soil hydraulic properties.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
