Soil is the largest carbon storage body at terrestrial area. Our previous research showed that macroporous soils conduct surface water without clogging and that bypass flow by macropores segregated organic matter from the surface. Organic matters will be effectively conserved by these physical processes, which contributed greatly to carbon storage as well as bio-chemical processes.
