Special Issue: Implications of Biochar Application to Soil Environment under Arid Conditions Arabian Journal of Geosciences, Springer

Recently, the influence of biochar incorporation into the soil environment has received much attention in relation to carbon sequestration, soil quality, and soil productivity. The effects of biochar on carbon sequestration and soil quality are dependent on biochar properties, which are mainly dependent on pyrolysis conditions and feedstock types. Some studies have shown biochar’s potential for increasing carbon sequestration, improving chemical, physical and biological soil properties, and enhancing soil productivity. Others have focused on the biochar’s potential for soil pollution prevention and remediation. However, most published articles were in humid environments.This special issue aims to covers several topics on the implications of biochar application to soil environment under arid conditions. The special issue welcomes papers beforeDec. 30, 2018focusing on the on the following topics:

  • Biochar’s potential for carbon sequestration and nutrients cycle in geo-system
  • Biochar effects on biotic and abiotic soil properties
  • Biochar quality and its implication in agro-ecosystem under arid condition
  • Soil pollution prevention and remediation
  • Biochar for Alkaline soils
  • Biochar impacts on soil Pedology
