Posters will be displayed in the catering area for the duration of the symposium. Authors must print their posters A0 size (84.1cm wide x 118.9cm high) in portrait orientation. Landscape posters will not be accommodated at the venue. Please see below for schedule of poster presentation sessions, authors are expected to stand by their poster during their designated session to answer questions from delegates.
POSTER SESSION 1: 1520-1550 MONDAY 7TH OCTOBER
POSTER SESSION 2: 1500-1530 TUESDAY 8TH OCTOBER
GOING DOWNUNDER: DEEP SOM DYNAMICS
Possibly seen as the last frontier, SOM in subsoils is far less studied than its surface counterparts. Here, we seek presentations that highlight recent advances in this area and which draw parallels with and highlight differences between processes in surface soils.
|Organic carbon decomposition rates with depth under an agroforestry system in a calcareous soil||Prof. Claire Chenu|
|Changes in microbial biomass, community composition and diversity, and functioning with soil depth in two alpine ecosystems on the Tibetan Plateau||Tianle Xu|
|Organic manure input not benefit for inorganic carbon accumulation in semiarid cropland||Prof. Shulan Zhang|
|N and P co-limitation of carbon turnover in a clayey loam very deep subsoil||Leanne Peixoto|
POSTER SESSION 3: 1500-1530 WEDNESDAY 9TH OCTOBER
SOM, MODELLING, AND DATA SCIENCE
Simulation models describing SOM dynamics have been around for decades, and perform roles at levels ranging from the molecular and microbial scale through to global carbon accounts and climate predictions. Recent advances in computing capacity, data availability, and our understanding of biophyiscal processes have led to huge leaps forward in our capability to model across scales. Here, we provide opportunity for recent advances in modelling and data sciences associated with SOM research to be presented.
|Plant biomass inputs and soil organic carbon dynamics in woodlands and pastures of central Queensland||Stuart Irvine-Brown|
|Measurement and modelling-induced discrepancies in the long-term contribution of root and added biomass to carbon sequestration in a permanent grassland soil||Dr Mohammad Ibrahim Khalil|
|The methodology for farm-scale modelling for spatio-temporal prediction of soil carbon sequestration under climate change||Emeritus Professor Lynette Abbott|
|Long-term effects of straw removal on soil carbon dynamics in sugarcane cropping systems in south-central Brazil||Dr Ricardo Bordonal|
|Factors controlling long-term organic carbon dynamics in the soils of Germany||Dr Andreas Möller|
TRANSPORT OF SOM THROUGH LANDSCAPES
Desposition and loss of SOM through erosion and leaching processes can have significant impacts at the local, landscape, and global scale. Here, we seek presentations detailing the latest research into the movement of SOM at any or all of these scales.
|Soil organic matter distribution in a floodplain forest||Dr Mark Thomas|
