A new paper led by Aurore Kaisermann is currently under review in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics discussion. In this paper, we report carbonyl sulphide (COS) production and consumption rates in 27 European and Mediterranean soils and their biotic and abiotic drivers. Our main finding is
Sam’s new paper “non-destructive estimates of soil carbonic anhydrase activity and associated soil water oxygen isotope composition” is now published in Hydrology and Earth System Sciences. In this paper, we present a non-destructive method to retrieve simultaneously the soil carbonic anhydrase activity and
A new paper led by Samuel Jones is currently under review in Hydrology and Earth System Sciences discussion. In this paper, we present a non-destructive method to retrieve simultaneously the soil carbonic anhydrase activity and the oxygen isotopic composition of soil water that interacts
A new paper led by our PhD student Joana Sauze on the role of pH on the carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity in soils is currently under review in Biogeosciences discussion. This paper demonstrates that soil pH is one of the
In the past few years, carbonyl sulphide (COS or OCS) has emerged as a new promising trace gas to estimate gross primary productivity (GPP, that is how much carbon plants can remove from the atmosphere, check this if you want
Last week half of our team met in Vienna for the general assembly of the European Geosciences Union 2016. All our presentations and contributions had great success: Jérôme Ogée gave a talk on incorporating novel tracers into a global modelling
The EcoFun team will be well represented at the next AGU meeting held in San Francisco, California (13-18 Dec 2015), with a total of four poster, four oral presentations and two primary speakers. Check out the schedule!
Samuel Jones has just arrived in our group to work on Lisa’s ERC project. He will be in charge of collecting data with a portable system to measure soil carbonic anhydrase activity at several locations around the world. Welcome!
