The Impact of Climate Change on Soils

Agriculture is expected to play a key role in climate change mitigation and adaptation, much of which is driven by soil management. In this presentation we’ll discuss agricultural sources of greenhouse gas emissions, opportunities to mitigate these emissions (and emissions from other sectors), and potential adaptation strategies. In particular, we’ll look at soils through the lens of soil health, explore how climate change may impact soil health, and discuss the potential and limitations of soil health-building practices to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Presented by Gabe and Deirdre LaHue, Assistant Professors of Soil Science at WSU, NW Washington Research and Extension Center, Mt. Vernon.
