Institute for Agro-Environmental Sciences, NARO

Soil Biogeochemistry & Modeling Unit

The goal of our unit is to elucidate biogeochemical cycling and its controlling factors with major foci on C and N and to develop biogeochemistry models to better understand and predict the emission of greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O) as well as sequestration of soil organic C, thereby contributing to climate change mitigation and agri-food system sustainability.
