Vom Verlag: Proceedings of the St. Michaels Workshop, December 1998. Carbon dioxide accumulation in the atmosphere as the result of fossil fuel emissions and land use change (especially tropical deforestation) threatens to cause global warming and climatic change. One means of reducing the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide is through its capture by photosynthesis and storage (sequestration) in soil. The quantities of carbon that can be sequestered during the next century are enough to offset two or three decades' worth of carbon emissions at the current rate.
This book deals with four issues that must be addressed before soil carbon sequestration programs can be implemented on a large scale: New Science: There are already many proven and readily implemented methods to increase soil carbon inventories in soils. But opportunities may exist for increasing the potential of soils and plants to sequester carbon. The book explores new lines of research that promise to improve understanding of soil carbon dynamics and lead to improved sequestration methods. Monitoring and Verification: International agreements to include soil sequestration in national carbon budgets will require agreed-upon monitoring and verification procedures. The book explores near-term deployment of existing procedures and the development of new methods based on remote sensing, GIS, flux monitoring, and other technologies. The Soil Carbon Sequestration/Desertification Linkage: Degraded and desertified lands have a great capacity to sequester carbon. Sequestration of carbon in degraded soil can contribute to recovery of their productivity. The book examines programs to couple the objectives of both the Climate Change and Desertification Conventions. Policy and Implementation Issues: There are institutional, economic and social impediments to implementation of domestic and international soil carbon sequestration research and action programs. The book explores these with particular emphasis on the three preceding issues.
