Session Description:
Soil is one of the most critical life-supporting compartments of the Biosphere. Despite its important functions, many fundamental knowledge gaps regarding the interplay between biotic and a-biotic processes and the long term evolution of soils in landscapes remain. Soil models have long played an important role in quantifying and predicting soil processes and related ecosystem services. However, a new generation of soil models based on a whole systems approach comprising all physical, mechanical, chemical and biological processes is now required to address these critical knowledge gaps. To address these issues we propose a session that explicitly deals with challenges and perspectives in modelling soil processes. We welcome contributions that address major scientific gaps in describing key soil processes, intercompare soil models and evaluate model uncertainty, discuss soil data requirements and model-data integration approaches, and link soil with other process models such as climate, land surface, ecological, crop and contaminant models.

Invited contributors:

Andrea Schnepf (Agrosphere Institute, IBG-3, Forschungszentrum Jülich) Dani Or (ETH Zurich) Jirka Simunek (UC Riverside) Steven D Allison (UC Irvine)
