Impact of potential climate change on soil health

Climate change affects :Soil moisture regimesSoil temperature regimes SOC poolSoil vegetation20

Functions of the SOC pool:

On site functionsSource and sink of essential plant nutrientssubstrate for energy for soil biotaincrease cation exchange capacityabsorbent of water at low moisture potentialspromoter of soil aggregationhigh water infiltration capacity high Buffering capacitymoderator of soil temperature.

21Off site functionsReduces sediment load in streams and riversfilters pollutants of agricultural chemicalsreactors for biodegradation of contaminants andbuffers the emissions of GHGs from soil to the atmosphere.

22OUTLINEIntroductionClimate changeImpact of climate change on agricultureCarbon sequestrationAgricultural management strategies for carbon sequestrationConclusions.23CARBON SEQUESTRATION The term carbon sequestration is used to describe both natural and deliberate processes by which CO is either removed from the atmosphere or diverted from emission sources and stored in different sinks. 24CARBON SEQUESTRATION SINKSIn plants and soil terrestrial sequestrationUnderground geological sequestration Deep in ocean ocean sequestrationAs a solid material (still in development)

25SOIL CARBON SEQUESTRATIONSoil can be a major source or sink of atmospheric CO.Soil carbon sequestration refers to the storage of carbon in soil.It is considered to be a strategy for mitigating climate change.


SOIL :THE LARGEST TERRESTRIAL CARBON POOLThe global soil carbon pool amounts to 2500 GtThe total soil carbon pool is four times the biotic pool and three times the atmospheric poolLal (2004)Soil organic C stocks in soils of India have been estimated to be 21 Pg (upper 30 cm) and 63 Pg (upper 150 cm) Velayutham et al. (2000)271 tonne of carbon lost from soil 3.7 tonnes of CO to the atmosphere Climate change and agriculture (2012)Soil : as a sink of carbon sequestration
