Global Climate Change and Pedogenic Carbonates

Overview

The atmospheric concentration of natural greenhouse gases has increased steadily since the industrial revolution. Soil scientists and ecologists recognize the importance of the global carbon cycle and its role in the greenhouse effect. Global Climate Change and Pedogenic Carbonates explores the potential of world soils to act as a sink for atmospheric carbon.
Understanding the extent of this potential requires a thorough knowledge of the magnitude and nature of soil carbon ...

Overview

The atmospheric concentration of natural greenhouse gases has increased steadily since the industrial revolution. Soil scientists and ecologists recognize the importance of the global carbon cycle and its role in the greenhouse effect. Global Climate Change and Pedogenic Carbonates explores the potential of world soils to act as a sink for atmospheric carbon.
Understanding the extent of this potential requires a thorough knowledge of the magnitude and nature of soil carbon pools and their dynamics in different ecosystems. The soil carbon pool plays an important -and well recognized - role in the global carbon cycle. It is not yet clear how and under what conditions this pool can be influenced by human intervention, especially the large inorganic carbon pool that occurs largely in arid regions.
Global Climate Change and Pedegenic Carbonates summarizes what we know about soil inorganic carbon and develops strategies that could lead to the retention of more carbon in the soil. It covers basic concepts, analytical methods, secondary carbonates, and research and development priorities. With this book you will get a better understanding of the global carbon cycle, organic and inorganic carbon, and their roles, or what we know of them, in the greenhouse effect.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Summarizes what is known about soil inorganic carbon and develops strategies that could lead to the retention of more carbon in soil. Sections deal with basic concepts, analytic methods, dynamics of secondary carbonates, management impacts on PIC, and recommendations for research and development. Explores the role of carbon in the global sink, discusses knowledge gaps in the relationship between inorganic carbon and the greenhouse effect, and explains the effect of land use policies and agricultural systems on the carbon pool. The editor is affiliated with The Ohio State University. Material is based on papers presented at an October 1997 workshop. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
