Project description

In Summart the CSI will have provided data on 13C AS analyses protocols, AS dynamics, turnover and effect of land use on AS concentration and 13C signatures, In a final activity this information will be brought together to assess the potential (technical and analytical) to use AS as biomarkers for soil erosion studies.
