Soil organic carbon sequestration: scoping study

A report evaluating the ability of existing datasets to answer questions regarding the status of organic carbon in Scottish soils.


Appendix 3: Plots of SOC concentrations against selected soil properties

Figure A1: Relationship between SOC concentration and Available water capacity from NSIS 2007-9.
The graphical relationship between soil organic carbon concentration and available water capacity in mineral soils showing an increase in the available water capacity with increasing carbon concentrations.
Figure A2: Relationship between SOC concentration and aggregate stability in arrange of soil types.
The graphical relationship between soil organic carbon concentration and an index of aggregate stability showing an increasing in aggregate stability with increasing carbon concentrations.
Figure A3: Relationship between loss on ignition ( LoI) and bulk density from Soilbio dataset (Ken Loades)
The graphical relationship between loss on ignition and soil bulk density in mineral soils showing a decrease in bulk density with increasing percentage loss on ignition.
