Abstract

Assessing stabilization of soil organic matter (SOM) with heavy metal contamination is one factor that will invariably provide an answer to whether heavy metal contamination affects the storage of soil organic matter/carbon. The transformations of SOM will bring about changes in functional group chemistry during decomposition/mineralization. The effects of heavy metal contamination level under different land use type on carbon sequestration were investigated. Results indicated that, the concentration of heavy metal under different land use affects the transformation of soil organic matter. This will have implication on carbon storage/Sequestration
