Spatial models for monitoring the spatio-temporal evolution of ashes after fire-a case study of a burnt grassland in Lithuania [Article]
Ash thickness is a key variable in the protection of soil against erosion agents after planned and unplanned fires. Ash thickness measurements were conducted along two transects (flat and sloping areas) following a ...
Spatial Gradients of Intensity and Persistence of Soil Water Repellency Under Different Forest Types in Central Mexico [Article]
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2016)
Organic residues release hydrophobic compounds to the soil that may induce soil water repellency (WR), which may inhibit inﬁltration andincrease runoff and soil loss rates. Although there are many studies on soil WR through ...
Stones resting on the top soil cause heterogeneous patterns of fire-induced water repellency [Article]
Depending on soil and fire characteristics, soil water repellency (SWR) may be induced, enhanced or destroyed by burning. The spatial pattern of SWR may be extremely heterogeneous as a consequence of the temperature peaks, ...
Assessment of soil suitability for improvement of soil factors and agricultural management [Article]
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019)
The dramatic growth of the world's population is increasing the pressure on natural resources, particularly on soil systems. At the same time, inappropriate agricultural practices are causing widespread soil degradation. ...
Short-term microbial response after laboratory heating and ground mulching adition [Article]
Fire alters soil organic matter inducing quantitative and qualitative changes that presumably will affect post-fire soil microbial recolonisation. Several studies have evidenced marked soil organic carbon reduction after ...
