Soil Carbon Sequestration to Mitigate Climate Change

Soil Carbon Sequestration to Mitigate Climate Change
-

This is a past event

Rising CO2 in the air is causing global warming and climate change. Microbes in the soil act as gatekeepers of soil-air carbon exchange. This exchange is affected as microbes adapt to environmental change.

On Thursday 24 September from 4pm-5pm (BST) we will be joined by Dr. Ashish A. Malik. As part of two virtual events timed to run concurrently with Climate Week NYC 2020, Dr Malik will present his latest research which suggests that microbes can be used to increase carbon in degraded soils. This can be a great strategy not only to improve soil quality but also to mitigate climate change by drawing down CO2 into soils.

Online registrations for this event are now closed. If you would like to register for this event please email alumni@abdn.ac.uk.
