De invloed van klimaatverandering op de bodemtemperatuur: Inventarisatie van de ontwikkeling van de bodemtemperatuur en de invloed op de biotische en abiotische processen in natuurgebieden

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


Climate change has caused an increase of the soil temperature of the top 100 cm of 1.5 C on average over the past 40 years. This increase leads to an acceleration of various soil processes such as mineralization, denitrification and peat oxidation. Soil temperature is one of the many factors that play a role in the development of natural vegetation. There is also a strong interaction between the vegetation and the soil temperature, whereby the effect of vegetation on soil temperature exceeds that of soil temperature on vegetation. This means that soil temperature depends very much on the local microclimate. Further research should clarify the extent to which the soil temperature will continue to rise in the future and what the consequences will be for the design and management of nature reserves.
