The total organic carbon (TOC) content is an important indicator for a multitude of applications. In agricultural science, carbon is an important parameter to understand the element cycling of soils and sediments. Organic carbon enters through the decomposition of plant and animal residues and acts as the main source of nutrients for microorganisms and plants. TOC analysis, therefore, provides essential information about microbiological activity and organic matter to characterize and evaluate soil and sediment.
