Evaluating the options for carbon sequestration

Gough, C., Shackley, S. and Cannell, M.G.R.

In this study, the authors look at biological and geological (or physiochemical) carbon sequestration. This paper summarizes and reviews global, European and UK estimates of the amount of carbon that could be sequestered in biomass (plants and soils) during the coming 50-100 years, and the amount of carbon emitted by burning fossil fuels that could be avoided by growing biomass for energy.
