Short summary
Understanding the mechanisms of OC stabilization within Mediterranean river systems could have important implications for the stability of soil carbon stocks affected by erosion. These results underline the importance of studying soil erosion, soil formation, and geomorphological processes together in semiarid and subhumid catchments, where intermittent fluvial courses are predominant. Good management of these environments will be a powerful tool for climate change mitigation.
Understanding the mechanisms of OC stabilization within Mediterranean river systems could have...
