BCN Faculty Research: Soil holds potential to slow global warming, two studies show

Luke Nave demonstrates methods to measure soil carbon at University of Michigan Biological Station.

If you want to do something about global warming, look under your feet. Managed well, soil’s ability to trap carbon dioxide is potentially much greater than previously estimated, according to researchers who say the resource could “significantly” offset increasing global emissions. The scientists also call for a reversal of federal cutbacks to related research programs…
