Soil erosion is an important process leading to a loss of topsoil, including carbon and nutrients, to reduction of soil quality and to a loss of biomass production. The erosion-induced redistribution of soil organic carbon (SOC) is an important component of the global C cycle. So far, the fate of SOC in eroding landscapes is not yet fully understood, which remains an important uncertainty in quantifying the global C cycle. The main objective of Xiang Wang’s PhD thesis is to improve our process understanding of the fate of different SOC fractions under soil erosion, transport and subsequent deposition and to get an insight into the possible mechanisms governing stabilisation and destabilisation of SOC in coupled eroding and depositional environments.
