Determination of Soil Organic Carbon and Soil Chloride Concentrations: An Initial Effort to Determine if Chloride-based Road Deicers Impact Carbon Sequestration Rates in Roadside Right-of-ways

The objective of this research project is to assess if the use of chloride-based snow and ice control products have an impact on potential carbon sequestration rates in the near road environment, and if so, the potential magnitude of this influence. This will be accomplished by sampling roadside soils and testing for total organic carbon and chlorides and comparing this data to measured carbon flux.
