The General Assembly 2024 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU 2024) will bring together scientists and especially early career researchers from all over the world to discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience from 14-19 April (Vienna, Austria, and online). This event will include a session on forest management and soils for climate change mitigation organised by members of the HoliSoils consortium.
Apply now to join HoliSoils’ session on the effects of forest management on soil carbon sequestration!
Submit your abstracts to the session ‘The role of forest management and soils in meeting climate change mitigation goals’ organised by researchers from HoliSoils’ project coordinator Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke).
This session will explore the current understanding of the effects of forest management on soil carbon sequestration and other processes to develop effective forest-based climate change mitigation strategies.
The session invites experimental and modelling contributions to address the knowledge gaps still remaining and will focus on:
- Advancing knowledge concerning the effects of forest management on soil carbon sequestration, greenhouse gas balances, biodiversity, nutrient stocks, organic matter quality, water resources, and stabilisation processes.
- Enhancing comprehension of the impacts of natural disturbances and preventing forest management on soil functioning and resilience.
- Improving understanding of modelling on the potential of forest management to mitigate climate change.
The Call for Abstracts for EGU24 is open until 10 January 2024 (13:00 CET)!
