Soil Carbon Sequestration and the Greenhouse Effect

Rattan Lal

Soil Carbon Sequestration and the Greenhouse Effect comprises technical papers from a Soil Science Society symposium in 1998. The papers offer information on soil carbon sequestration from croplands, range lands, forest lands, and set-aside or CRP lands in the US and Canada, highlighting the importance of pedospheric processes in soil carbon sequestration. Specific topics include inventory of carbon emissions and sequestration of US cropland soils, carbon dynamics and sequestration of a mixed-grass prairie as influenced by grazing, possibilities of change in the greenhouse gas balance of agro ecosystems in Canada, and reconstruction of soil inorganic and organic carbon sequestration across broad geoclimatic regions.
