Paper Abstract

Here we describe a prototype for non-destructive, in-situ, accurate and cost-effectively measurement procedure of carbon in soil based on neutron activation analysis using 14 MeV tagged neutron beam. This technology can be used for carbon baseline assessment on regional scale and for monitoring of its surface and depth storage due to the changes in agricultural practices undertaken in order to mitigate global climate change.
