White Mountains Soils Research

White Mountains Map
Location of the White Mountains in California
The White Mountains of California and Nevada (see map left) are a triangular fault-block mountain range facing the Sierra Nevada across the upper Owens Valley. This project will present information on soil chemistry in this region, with particular emphasis on Phosphorous Biogeochemistry, and the effect of soil development on biogeochemical cycling of essential elements. The research presented focuses on understanding how soil phosphorus stock and availability respond to climate change and its implications for plant productivity, carbon sequestration and other essential ecosystem services provided by the critical zone.
