  • Alpine soils may release carbon following climate change

    Climate change is expected to cause warmer climate zones to extend, not only further north, but also higher up into mountainous regions. High mountain regions may be particularly sensitive to environmental change. A recent study reveals that a warmer climate may cause carbon stored in Alpine soils to be released. Soil was recognised as a significant carbon reservoir by the Kyoto protocol1 and ...
