Terrestrial sequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2)

R. Lal,     The Ohio State University, USA

Abstract:

Carbon sequestration in terrestrial ecosystems, comprising soils and biota, is one of several possible strategies being considered to stabilize atmospheric concentration of CO2 and other greenhouse gases. This chapter looks at basic techniques of carbon sequestration in terrestrial ecosystems by which atmospheric CO2 is transferred into the terrestrial and aquatic C pools via the natural process of photosynthesis. The role of the terrestrial pool in the global carbon cycle, agricultural emissions, sequestration of carbon in soil and the potential benefits and challenges of terrestrial carbon sequestration are described together with the ...
