Abstract

Soil erosion has changed the quality and patterns of soils and their interaction with the environment, in particular the atmosphere, in the Karoo rangelands. This projects aims at identfing the impact of soil redistribution in the past 100 years on soil carbon stocks and C fluxes between soil and atmosphere. In addition, an extrapolation from the local to the svannah ecotone level is attempted.
