The pedosphere - the thin mantel of soil on the earth's surface - plays a potentially crucial role in climate and climate change . The carbon storage of soils is the second largest in the biosphere, making the dynamics of soil organic carbon an important issue that must be understood if we are to fully comprehend global change. This new book examines the importance of soils and their relationship to global change, specifically to the greenhouse effect. Soils and Global Change presents a state-of-the-art compendium of our present knowledge of soils. This up-to-date information source enables readers to delve into the literature about soils and climate change and examine soils in both natural and managed environments.

Soils

This important book challenges the prevalent view of the characteristics and origins of soils. In it, three distinguished earth scientists argue that soils are primarily geological materials altered and rearranged by biological, geological, and geomorphic processes rather than as direct products of time, climate, organisms, parent material, and topographic setting.
