This technical review supports the discussions in the main body of the report. It is a source of more detailed discussion (and references), and was distilled down for the main body of the report. The sections contained within the technical review covered the three topics within the SLMACC (Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change) Climate Change Effects on Soils theme (soil carbon, soil services and soil nitrogen), and represent a compilation of the findings of these three groups. The evidence for the climate change projections for New Zealand is also presented in this technical review. The individual reviews were undertaken using available literature and combined with current best knowledge from national experts. The national experts were brought together at a workshop in February 2013 to investigate and debate the evidence in order to be more certain of the outcomes of climate change on soils.
