- ... Organic matter is the soil component most affected by wildfires, both in terms of abundance and composition. Fire-induced alteration of soil organic matter (SOM) depends on heating intensity and duration, oxygen availability and other factors related to topography, climate, soil and vegetation features. Particularly affected by fire is the litter layer, but SOM from the uppermost mineral soil can ...

- ... An experiment was undertaken to measure the concentration of soil organic carbon (SOC) in particles mobilized by rainfall splash under natural precipitation and to assess its relationship with soil and precipitation properties. Splash cups were deployed on three agricultural soils typical of the central Ebro Valley in Spain (a Cambisol, a Gypsisol, and a Solonchak), and the rainfall characteristic ...
