A new paper led by Aurore Kaisermann is currently under review in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics discussion. In this paper, we report carbonyl sulphide (COS) production and consumption rates in 27 European and Mediterranean soils and their biotic and abiotic drivers. Our main finding is that COS production rates co-vary with total soil nitrogen (r=0.68, P<0.05) and the first-order COS uptake rate co-varies most with microbial N content (r=0.64, P<0.05), providing new insights on how to upscale the contribution of soils to the global COS atmospheric budget.
