How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Michael Dannenmann currently works at the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. Michael does research in soil biogeochemistry, plant-soil-microbe-carbon-nitrogen interactions and biosphere-atmosphere-hydrosphere exchange of environmentally relevant substances. A current project is 'SUSALPS (Sustainable use of alpine and pre-alpine grassland soils in a changing climate).'
Climate change influences the (nutrient) matter balance in the near subsurface, and therefore the interaction patterns between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in cultural and natural landscapes will change and put ecological and economic soil functions and ecosystem services at risk. This interdisciplinary project combines the competences of geomorphology, soil science, microbiology, stable isotope biogeochemistry, hydrology and aquatic systems biology.
Key functions of soils and soil-related ecosystem services depend on the ability of soils to store organic matter. To address global environmental challenges such as climate change mitigation and adaption or food security, studies at regional scales are needed that take into account local knowledge on soil conditions and management aspects. This project summarizes studies on carbon storage and sequestration in soils of Bavaria as affected by climate, land use and management practices.
