    Changes in the soil carbon stock can potentially have a large influence on global carbon balance between terrestrial ecosystems and atmosphere. Since carbon sequestration of forest soils is influenced by human activities, reporting of the soil carbon pool is a compulsory part of the national...

    Modifying current agricultural management practices as a means of sequestering carbon has been shown to be a relatively low cost way to offset greenhouse gas emissions. In this paper, we examine the sensitivity of the estimates of the amount of soil carbon sequestered and the costs of...

    Carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the major components of greenhouse gases, is of major concern in terms of the global warming phenomenon. To mitigate the effect of atmospheric CO2, carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been found to be an important tool. The present study aims at explaining the role...

    The atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide (CO) and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) have increased dramatically since the industrial revolution. The atmospheric enrichment with CO and other GHGs has resulted in multiple negative consequences: such as the increase in the average temperature and the...

    The amount of carbon stored in soil and vegetation varies according to land use. Land-use changes (LUCs) affect those carbon stocks. Changes in carbon stocks also affect greenhouse gas emissions. Predicting LUCs is therefore necessary to establish quantitative targets for carbon dioxide (CO)...

  • An evaluation of the century model to predict soil organic carbon: examples from Costa Rica and Canada. Oelbermann, Maren; Voroney, R. P. // Agroforestry Systems;May2011, Vol. 82 Issue 1, p37 

    Greater organic matter inputs in agroforestry systems contribute to the long-term storage of carbon (C) in the soil, and the use of simulation models provides an opportunity to evaluate the dynamics of the long-term trends of soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks in these systems. The objective of...
