Happy to announce the publication of:
Apesteguia, M., Plante, A.F., and I. Virto (2018) Methods assessment for organic and inorganic carbon quantification in calcareous soils of the Mediterranean region. Geoderma Regionaldoi:10.1016/j.geodrs.2017.12.001. This paper was part of Marcos Apesteguia’s PhD dissertation at the Universidad Pública de Navarra in Pamplona, Spain. Marcos visited the last a few years back to run a thermal analyses to determine if we could use the technique to distinguish and quantify organic and inorganic carbon in carbonate-rich soils from Spain. We compared our thermal method to several conventional methods and found it performed very well.
