The U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program convened the International Decade of Soils (2015–2024) Workshop at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, in March 2016.

 Soil carbon (C) resilience is promoted by the stabilization of carbon in its mineral-associated, sorbed, particulate, and dissolved forms and microbes in complex soil aggregates. Vulnerability increases when intrinsic soil properties, environmental conditions, and perturbations reduce the amounts of stable aggregates, soil microbes, particulate C, and mineral-associated and sorbed C, leading to greater proportions of leached C and greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide and methane).
