Dynamics of Radiocarbon in SoilsCherkinsky, A. E.; Brovkin, V. A. (Department of Geosciences, The University of Arizona, 1993-01-01)We present here a model of humus accumulation in recent soils. We have estimated the coefficients of mineralization of humus and humic acid for a typical Chemozem soil. We suggest a technique for calculating the renewal time of soil with specific activity higher than the modem standard and discuss the results for different soils.
