Current and Emerging Protocols for Carbon Measurement in Agricultural Soils

SS721/SL508by Suraj Melkani, Noel Manirakiza, Shirley M. Baker, and Jehangir H. BhadhaOctober 19th, 2023Soils have the capacity to function as a sink of atmospheric carbon dioxide and are crucial for climate regulation. Soil have the potential to store around 1.5 to 2.4 trillion metric tons of C in the soil globally. They contain large C pools that can store three times more C than the atmosphere and four times more than plants. These massive C sinks have the potential to reverse soil degradation, mitigate climate change, and enhance food security. It is therefore essential to monitor the C cycle by accurately measuring the amount of soil C in agricultural fields. This can help in developing sustainable management practices that can minimize C emissions and sequester C into the soil from the atmosphere. This publication describes the various current and emerging protocols that can be used to measure soil C.Critical Issue: Natural Resources and Environment
