Williams, Elizabeth K.; et al. 2019: “Effects of 7 Years of Field Weathering on Biochar Recalcitrance and Solubility.”

Williams, Elizabeth K., Davey L. Jones, Hannah R. Sanders, Gabriel V. Benitez, and Alain F. Plante. 2019: “Effects of 7 Years of Field Weathering on Biochar Recalcitrance and Solubility.” Biochar 1 (3): 237–48. https://doi.org/10.1007/s42773-019-00026-1.

"How weathering affects the physiochemical properties of biochar and its long-term carbon (C) sequestration potential remains unclear. In this study, we measured changes in biochar recalcitrance and solubility after 7 years of weathering in a cultivated field."

Yale Environment 360: Can ‘Carbon Smart’ Farming Play a Key Role in the Climate Fight?

"Markets are emerging to pay farmers to store more carbon in the soil by using improved agricultural practices. But flows of greenhouse gases into and out of soil are complex, and some scientists are questioning whether these efforts will actually help slow global warming."
