Management of Carbon Sequestration in Soil

Overview

Agricultural activities considered responsible for an increase in CO2 levels in our atmosphere include: deforestation, biomass burning, tillage and intensive cultivation, and drainage of wetlands. However, agriculture can also be a solution to the problem in which carbon can be removed from the atmosphere and permanently sequestered into the soil. This volume is one of three addressing the importance of soil processes in the global carbon cycle.

Overview

Agricultural activities considered responsible for an increase in CO2 levels in our atmosphere include: deforestation, biomass burning, tillage and intensive cultivation, and drainage of wetlands. However, agriculture can also be a solution to the problem in which carbon can be removed from the atmosphere and permanently sequestered into the soil. This volume is one of three addressing the importance of soil processes in the global carbon cycle.

Management of Carbon Sequestration in Soil highlights the importance of world soils as a sink for atmospheric carbon and discusses the impact of tillage, conservation reserve programs (CRP), management of grasslands and woodlands, and other soil and crop management and land use practices that lead to carbon sequestration.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Like juries and monks, carbon can be sequestered, specifically to keep it in the soil and so reduce the carbon dioxide released to the atmosphere by such processes as deforestation, biomass burning, tillage and intensive cultivation, and draining wetlands. In the first of three volumes of proceedings from a July 1996 symposium at Ohio State University, scientists discuss the role of soil in the atmospheric carbon cycle, various mechanisms for keeping carbon underfoot, and related policy issues. They cover soil management, crops to regulate carbon pools, the Conservation Reserve Program created by the Food Security Act of 1985, pastures and grasslands, forests, predicting and verifying carbon storage under Canadian prairies, and the need for research and action.
