Presentation at the European Geosience Union General Assembly, Vienna
On 19 April 2016, Thomas Guillaume (our post doctorate student from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland) participated in the European Geoscience Union General Assembly in Vienna, Austria. He presented his research on soil fertility in Indonesia, and how this will be continued within the OPAL project. The presentation focused on a new approach, developed to assess the sensitivity or resistance of soil fertility indicators to carbon losses resulting from land-use intensification in the tropics. The take home message was that assessing the dynamics of these indicators by this approach enables the selection of appropriate management practices and sustainable levels of agricultural intensity.
