There are a number of approaches to modeling soil organic matter turnover including: 1) process-based multicompartment models; 2) models that consider each fresh addition of plant debris as a separate cohort which decays in a continuous way; and 3) models that account for carbon and nitrogen transfers through various trophic levels in a soil food web. These approaches are described in more detail below.
