Dr Bhatti is funded as a visiting scientist for two years (2016 and 2017) funded by LEARN.
Her topic or research is “An investigation of controls on the dynamics of the C and N cycling in soils under permanent grasslands”.
Dr Bhatti will work with some soil samples to which biochar has been amended.
Biogeochemical models used to simulate greenhouse gas (GHG) exchange and carbon cycling in terrestrial ecosystems generally identify three pools of soil organic matter (SOM) with different turnover times: active (0.5-1 year), slow (10-50 years) and resistant (1000-5000 years). Each of these have different agronomic and environmental implications.
In this study we aim to get a deeper understanding on
This research will take advantage of previous and on-going research on soil carbon and N2O emissions funded by the NZAGRC and other agencies so that studies are complemented and synergies maximised.
Dr Bhatti, originally from Pakistan, has a master's from the University of Arid Agriculture in Pakistan and a PhD from the University of York.
