The link between soil structure and carbon sequestration is well documented in temperate soils. The underlying concepts however, are not valid for highly weathered, trompical soils. The ubiqui- tons presence of sesquioxides, the different clay mineralogy result in different binding mechanisms between organic matter and minerals. Yet, soil structure is equally important in those soils and therefore this project aims at unravelling the under- lying relations.
