EGU24: The role of forest management and soils in meeting climate change mitigation goals

17 November 2023

The upcoming EGU General Assembly 2024 (EGU24) will take place on 14-19 April 2024 both on-site in Vienna, Austria, and virtually. It aims to offer scientists a platform to present their work and engage in discussions with experts across diverse geoscience fields.

The Call for Abstracts for EGU24 is currently open, with a deadline of 13:00 CET, 10 January 2024.

ForestPaths extends an invitation to submit abstracts for the session on ‘The role of forest management and soils in meeting climate change mitigation goals’. Organised by researchers from the HoliSoils project, this session encourages experimental and modelling contributions from forests around the world. The focus is on advancing knowledge about the impact of forest management on soil carbon sequestration and related processes to develop effective forest-based climate change mitigation strategies.

Specific topics encompass, but are not confined to:

1) Advancing knowledge concerning the effects of forest management on soil carbon sequestration, greenhouse gas balances, biodiversity, nutrient stocks, organic matter quality, water resources, and stabilisation processes.

2) Enhancing comprehension of the impacts of natural disturbances and preventing forest management on soil functioning and resilience.

3) Improving understanding of modelling on the potential of forest management to mitigate climate change.
