Climate change refers to the changing Earths climatic system lasting from over a few decades to millions of years. The formation of soil is a complex and a long process involving the multifarious interaction of the number of forces viz relief, climate, parent material, organisms all acting over time. Climate is one of the most important factors affecting the formation of soil with important implications for their development, use and management perspective with reference to soil structure, stability, topsoil water holding capacity, nutrient availability and erosion. Assuming constant inputs of carbon to soils from vegetation, different estimate predicts that expected changes in temperature, precipitation and evaporation will cause significant change in organic matter turnover and CO2 dynamics. In conclusion, increased productivity would generally lead to greater inputs of carbon to soil, thus increasing organic matter in soil.
