Biologic Carbon Sequestration Assessment

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

This is an interdisciplinary effort to assess ecosystem carbon sequestration capacity for all domestic ecosystems as a function of climate, land use, land management and disturbances. The integrated assessment relies on existing data collected by various national inventory, monitoring, and remote sensing programs. The USGS is conducting research in collaboration with multiple partners to improve understanding of carbon cycling processes, assessment methodology capabilities, and uncertainties related to data, model, and existing knowledge.
