Downloadable (with restrictions)! Benefit and cost uncertainty in provisioning of ecosystem services are investigated in the context of soil carbon sequestration. Multiple parcel-level carbon sequestration options are considered. Uncertainty has been a widely stated reason for not including soil carbon sequestration in the portfolio of greenhouse gases reduction measures. Biophysical simulation models are used to generate a distribution of resulting environmental benefits. An econometric model of conservation practice adoption is used to generate a distribution of costs. The results provide a magnitude of uncertainty discount for soil carbon offsets and the budget margin of safety, and may assist in formulating carbon sequestration policy.

Global warming as a result of rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 emission is significantly influencing worlds economy and human activities. Carbon sequestration in phytoliths is regarded as a highly stable carbon sink mechanism in terrestrial ecosystems to mitigate climate change. However, the response of plant phytolith-occluded carbon (PhytOC) to external silicon amendments remains unclear. In this study, we investigated the effects of basalt powder (BP) amendment on phytolith carbon sequestration in rice (Oryza sativa), a high-PhytOC accumulator. The results showed that the contents of phytolith and PhytOC in rice increased with BP amendment. The PhytOC production flux in different rice plant parts varied considerably (0.005-0.041 Mg CO2 ha-1 a-1 ), with the highest flux in the sheath. BP amendment can significantly enhance flux of phytolith carbon sequestration in croplands by 150 %. If the global rice cultivation of 1.55 9 108 ha had a similar flux of PhytOC production in this study, 0.61 9 107 to
On Earth, carbon sequestration in geologic units plays an important role in the carbon cycle, scrubbing CO2 from the atmosphere for long-term storage. While carbonate is identified in low abundances within the dust and soils of Mars, at ,1 wt% in select meteorites, and in limited outcrops, no massive carbonate rock reservoir on Mars has been identified to date. Here, we investigate the largest exposed carbonate-bearing rock unit, the Nili Fossae plains, combining spectral, thermophysical, and morphological analyses to evaluate the timing and carbon sequestration potential of rocks on Mars. We find that the olivine-enriched (∼20%-25%) basalts have been altered, by low-temperature in situ carbonation processes, to at most ∼20% Fe-Mg carbonate, thus limiting carbon sequestration in the Nili Fossae region to ∼0.25-12 mbar of CO2 during the late Noachian-early Hesperian, before or concurrent with valley network formation. While this is large compared to modern-day CO2 reservoirs, the lack of ...
Dr. David Johnson, Molecular Biologist, New Mexico State University will speak on the topic of Managing Soil Microbiology for Carbon Sequestration.
We examine the spatial and dynamic implications of policies aimed at encouraging carbon sequestration in agricultural soils. We consider incentive mechanisms to encourage the planting of energy multi-annual crops that allow higher carbon sequestration rates for a longer period of time. By using a dynamic micro-economic model, we simulate the sequence of crop plantings over a given time horizon and investigate different payment mechanisms (per-ton or per-hectare). We discuss their implications in terms of regulation policy and efficiency. This model is then applied to the Central Plains of Thessaly, Greece to assess the marginal costs of carbon sequestration and the optimal timing of switching to multi-annual energy crops. To do so, we couple the dynamic microeconomic model with a carbon accounting model and a geophysical database. We provide an assessment of the potential loss of efficiency related to the use of constant per-hectare payments. We also discuss the dynamic implications of these mechanisms

Excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a major contributor to global warming, and one of the methods proposed to reduce mankinds CO2 emissions is carbon sequestration - storing CO2 in deep within the earth and through farming and forestry practices. Scientists at MSU are on the forefront of both geologic and terrestrial carbon sequestration research. Geologic sequestration involves injecting liquefied or supercritical CO2 deep underground where it is stored in porous rock formations. The oil industry has been injecting relatively small amounts of CO2 underground for decades to enhance oil production, but now scientists are looking for ways to put billions of tons of CO2 safely underground. For decades, various industrial operations have injected and stored CO2 and other gases underground, and naturally occurring deposits of oil and gas trapped underground show scientists that CO2 can be safely and permanently stored beneath the ground. Now earth scientists at MSU are using new theories ...

A microbial mineral carbonation trial was conducted at the Woodsreef Asbestos Mine (NSW, Australia) to test cyanobacteria-accelerated Mg-carbonate mineral precipitation in mine tailings. The experiment aimed to produce a carbonate crust on the tailings pile surface using atmospheric carbon dioxide and magnesium from serpentine minerals (asbestiform chrysotile; Mg3Si2O5(OH)4) and brucite [Mg(OH)2]. The crust would serve two purposes: Sequestering carbon and stabilizing the hazardous tailings. Two plots (0.5 m3) on the tailings pile were treated with sulfuric acid prior to one plot being inoculated with a cyanobacteria-dominated consortium enriched from the mine pit lakes. After 11 weeks, mineral abundances in control and treated tailings were quantified by Rietveld refinement of powder X-ray diffraction data. Both treated plots possessed pyroaurite [Mg6Fe2(CO3)(OH)16·4H2O] at 2 cm depth, made visible by its orange-red color. The inoculated plot exhibited an increase in the hydromagnesite [Mg5(CO3)4(OH)2

TY - JOUR. T1 - Chronic nitrogen fertilization and carbon sequestration in grassland soils: evidence of a microbial enzyme link. AU - Cenini, Valeria L.. AU - Fornara, Dario A.. AU - McMullan, Geoffrey. AU - Ternan, Nigel. AU - Lajtha, Kate. AU - Crawley, Michael J.. PY - 2015/12/1. Y1 - 2015/12/1. N2 - Chronic nitrogen (N) fertilization can greatly affect soil carbon (C) sequestration by altering biochemical interactions between plant detritus and soil microbes. In lignin-rich forest soils, chronic N additions tend to increase soil C content partly by decreasing the activity of lignin-degrading enzymes. In cellulose-rich grassland soils it is not clear whether cellulose-degrading enzymes are also inhibited by N additions and what consequences this might have on changes in soil C content. Here we address whether chronic N fertilization has affected (1) the C content of light versus heavier soil fractions, and (2) the activity of four extracellular enzymes including the C-acquiring enzyme ...
Leakage from forest carbon sequestration-the amount of a programs direct carbon benefits undermined by carbon releases elsewhere-depends critically on demanders ability to substitute non-targeted timber for timber targeted by the program. Analytic, econometric, and sector-level optimization models are combined to estimate leakage from different forest carbon sequestration activities. Empirical estimates for the U.S. show leakage ranges from minimal (90 percent), depending on the activity and region.

Major disturbances have long-term influences on regional-scale carbon sequestration. Over a period of 30 years, the mountain beech forests were hit by a series of disturbance events that caused above-ground biomass to fall by 0.3 Mg C ha−1 year−1. If similar losses had occurred throughout the 2.9 million ha of Nothofagus forests in New Zealand (Wardle 1984), an estimated 870 Pg C year−1 would have moved from living biomass to detrital and atmospheric pools, equivalent to about 11% of New Zealands annual fossil fuel emissions (based on per capita consumption of 2 Mg C year−1). The simulation models suggest that, under realistic disturbance scenarios, above-ground carbon storage may fall by as much as 40% over a 40-year period and take equally long to recover (Fig. 8). Similar transformations are occurring in other regions. An outbreak of mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) in British Columbia, Canada, is greater in extent and severity than any previously recorded, killing ...
Carbon Capture and Storage: Carbon Dioxide Pressure Dissipates in Underground Reservoirs, Study Shows. The debate surrounding carbon capture and storage intensifies as scientists from the Earth Sciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) examine the capacity for storing carbon dioxide underground, in a study published today in the new journal Greenhouse Gases: Science & Technology.. The study debates some of the conclusions drawn in an earlier study by Ehlig-Economides and Economides1, countering their claims that carbon dioxide cannot feasibly be stored underground. These earlier findings, according to the Berkeley Lab researchers, only considered closed-system subsurface formations, with limited mechanisms for relieving the pressure.. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is controversial in the eyes of the general public. Pressure build-up in the subsurface induced by the injection of carbon dioxide from industrial-scale projects is a key constraint for the amount ...

Agriculture is a major contributor to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and must feature in efforts to reduce emissions. Organic farming might contribute to this through decreased use of farm inputs and increased soil carbon sequestration, but it might also exacerbate emissions through greater food production elsewhere to make up for lower organic yields. To date there has been no rigorous assessment of this potential at national scales. Here we assess the consequences for net GHG emissions of a 100% shift to organic food production in England and Wales using life-cycle assessment. We predict major shortfalls in production of most agricultural products against a conventional baseline. Direct GHG emissions are reduced with organic farming, but when increased overseas land use to compensate for shortfalls in domestic supply are factored in, net emissions are greater. Enhanced soil carbon sequestration could offset only a small part of the higher overseas emissions. The greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation
A recent article in the Guardian summarizes Regenerative Agriculture:. Regenerative agriculture comprises an array of techniques that rebuild soil and, in the process, sequester carbon. Typically, it uses cover crops and perennials so that bare soil is never exposed, and grazes animals in ways that mimic animals in nature. It also offers ecological benefits far beyond carbon storage: it stops soil erosion, remineralises soil, protects the purity of groundwater and reduces damaging pesticide and fertiliser runoff.. With these basic concepts of photosynthesis and Regenerative Agriculture in mind, what do we need to do?. (1) Regenerate croplands, eliminate GMOs, pesticides, monocultures, chemical fertilizers, and tillage. If we can mobilize the global grassroots to promote and adopt regenerative organic agricultural practices (organic and beyond) on the Earths four billion acres of cultivated farmland, we can drastically reduce our use of fossil fuel inputs and slash greenhouse gas emissions; ...

Overview:. In recent years, the U.S. Geological Survey has been conducting a national biologic carbon sequestration assessment in the conterminous U.S. The assessment is designed to meet the requirements of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which calls for coverage of all 50 states and all ecosystems (including forests, grasslands, wetlands, agricultural lands, and rivers, lakes, and estuaries). The assessment focuses on current and potential amounts of carbon stored in ecosystems, and effects of both natural and anthropogenic processes (such as fire, climate change, and land use change) on carbon sequestration. This project focuses on assessing current carbon stocks and potential change in carbon sequestration for the main Hawaiian Islands under future climate change scenarios. Existing carbon related data (land cover, fire, climate, soils, productivity, land use, wetland, etc.,) were collated and analyzed to develop an estimate of the current carbon stocks and fluxes under ...
The ruling considers an acid gas removal (AGR) unit installed at a methanol plant that was originally placed in service on January 1, 2017 for depreciation purposes. Since this date, the carbon oxide separated from the raw gas stream had been released into the atmosphere. In 2021, an investor purchases and installs new components of carbon capture equipment necessary to create a single process train capable of capturing the carbon oxide for transport. However, the investor does not acquire an interest in the AGR unit or the methanol plant.. The ruling concludes that, although the AGR units functions extend beyond the capture of carbon oxide (i.e., it is dual use property), it qualifies as carbon capture equipment for purposes of Section 45Q. However, the ruling also concludes that the investor is eligible for credits under Section 45Q even though it does not own the AGR unit.. Although the AGR unit had been operational since 2017, it was not capable of capturing carbon oxide until the investor ...

ARPA-E sought information regarding the role of flexible carbon capture in terms of plant- and grid-level performance, economics and emissions. This workshop focused on the impact of a growing share of renewable generation on conventional power plants equipped with carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems. Future natural gas combined cycle (NGCC) plants, for example, will ramp their output, turn down to a low level, operate at a reduced capacity factor, and experience increasing fluctuations in locational marginal price signals.. Leading experts in carbon dioxide capture technologies and controls, plant- and grid-level modeling and techno-economic analysis, as well as materials scientists, chemists, and chemical, mechanical, and systems engineers, convened to explore how the design and operation of CCS systems could be modified to lower the cost of capturing CO2 given such constraints. Participants lent their expertise to help ARPA-E explore innovative technologies to determine relevant and ...

In this study, the effectsof fertilizer types (chemical fertilizer and manure compost), cropping systems, and crop residuemanagement on SOC(Soil Organic Carbon) sequestration were investigated. Summer corn andwinter barley were cultivated on experimental plots under natural rainfall conditions for two years with chemical fertilizer and ma
Chronic nitrogen (N) fertilization can greatly affect soil carbon (C) sequestration by altering biochemical interactions between plant detritus and soil microbes. In lignin-rich forest soils, chronic N additions tend to increase soil C content partly by decreasing the activity of lignin-degrading enzymes. In cellulose-rich grassland soils it is not clear whether cellulose-degrading enzymes are also inhibited by N additions and what consequences this might have on changes in soil C content. Here we address whether chronic N fertilization has affected (1) the C content of light versus heavier soil fractions, and (2) the activity of four extracellular enzymes including the C-acquiring enzyme β-1,4-glucosidase (BG; necessary for cellulose hydrolysis). We found that 19 years of chronic N-only addition to permanent grassland have significantly increased soil C sequestration in heavy but not in light soil density fractions, and this C accrual was associated with a significant increase (and not ...
Low temperatures in the Arctic have through geological times caused a build-up of carbon (C) in the soil while carbon dioxide (CO2) has been removed from the atmosphere, because ecosystem respiration (ER) has been exceeded by the photosynthesis (GEP). Increasing air temperature, as occurring in current years, is likely to increase ER due to increased decomposition and increased substrate input e.g. due to permafrost thaw. If GEP is left unchanged and decomposition of old C from the soil is occurring this might result in an increase of the emission of CO2 to the atmosphere probably resulting in further warming. This PhD thesis addresses different aspects of climate change effects on C dynamics in the Arctic. The focus has been on i) changes in ER, age of the C sources, GEP and the net ecosystem exchange (NEE) in response to long- and short-term climate manipulations and ii) comparisons of CO2 fluxes and organic nutrient utilization between ecosystems occurring from different latitudes and ...

The Late Devonian-Early Mississippian-age New Albany Shale is both a source rock and reservoir rock for hydrocarbons in the Illinois Basin. Previously suggested models for organic carbon enrichment consider productivity, anoxia, and the interdependent roles of sedimentation, primary production, and microbial metabolism. This study attempts to reconstruct paleoenvironmental conditions during deposition and re-evaluates these models using geochemical data from multiple cores across the eastern edge of the Illinois Basin in west-central Kentucky. Geochemical methods utilizing redox-sensitive major elements (C, S, Fe, P, K, Ti, and Si), trace elements (V and Mo), and ratios (Ni/Co, V/Cr, and V/(V+Ni) are used. Analysis of paleo-redox indicators suggests variable bottom-water conditions during accumulation of the New Albany Shale members including: anoxic to possibly euxinic conditions for the Clegg Creek Member, anoxic to periodically dysoxic conditions for the Camp Run, and dysoxic to oxic (normal marine)
FAB-GGR is a new four-year, £2 million multi-institute consortium project that aims to better define the real world feasibility and consequences of large-scale afforestation and biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) approaches to greenhouse gas removal (GGR). These two greenhouse gas removal approaches have been chosen because they: have a common basis in growing biomass on available land; and play the largest roles of any GGR approaches in future low emission scenarios that keep global mean temperature increase to below 1.5 °C and 2 °C.
Since 1996, the Sleipner field has been used as a facility for carbon capture and storage by Equinor as operator and a group of partnering companies. This is the longest ongoing project on CO2 storage in the world. Each year?about 1 million tonnes CO2?from the natural gas is?captured and stored at Sleipner.

We are mapping the production of carbon cycle science, from the needs of those who make decisions to the scientists and agencies that supply scientific information and then back to the decision makers who might use the information. By comparing the supply and demand sectors of carbon cycle science, we will assess where linkages between the sectors are strong and where missed opportunities for linkage exist.
SARAIVA, Maria das Graças Gomes et al. Urban expansion and spatial distribution of malaria in the municipality of Manaus, State of Amazonas. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2009, vol.42, n.5, pp.515-522. ISSN 0037-8682. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822009000500008.. In the municipality of Manaus, intensification of the migratory process, along with precarious epidemiological and entomological surveillance, resulted in reintroduction of malaria transmission on the urban perimeter (in the eastern zone), in July 1988, after 13 years without any records of autochthonous disease. This study reports on the epidemiological situation relating to malaria and to the areas that were subjected to human actions (deforestation, human settlement, fish-rearing activity, etc) in Manaus, between 1986 and 2005. In this municipality, the population increase from 1986 to 2005 was 105.2%. This resulted from occupation of space, in the form of invasions and housing projects. From 2003, the increase in ...
Harken! Good news (maybe) encouraging news is a better description, as Negative Emissions Technology (NET) starts coming into focus. Conceptually, carbon removal or direct air capture removes CO2 from the atmosphere, which would be great for suppressing climate change.. In that regard, Elizabeth Kolbert recently interviewed (Yale Environment 360) Stephen Pacala (Princeton professor) chairman of the US scientific panel studying carbon removal under the auspices of the National Academies. Which means the project has top-notch clearances, in fact, blue chip.. Of course, the big question about direct carbon capture is whether it can fix a very big problem created by humans burning fossil fuels like crazed Madhatters portending an ecological disaster-in-waiting because of excessive levels of CO2 in the atmosphere, possibly leading to human extinction way ahead of schedule, too early, or looked at another way, extinction occurring well ahead of scientists models. But really, honestly and truly ...
The Kyoto Protocols Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) was created to aid clean development by allowing wealthy nations to invest in the developing world as a way to cut their greenhouse gas emissions and claim credits against their own emission reduction targets.It is intended to help the developing world leapfrog dirty development and avoid dependence on coal and other fossil fuels. According to the rules governing the CDM, projects must promote fair geographic distribution and should lead to the transfer of environmentally safe and sound technology. CDM projects must be cost effective and also contribute to sustainable development.Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), the process of capturing, transporting and storing CO2 from coal fired power stations, does not meet any of these criteria, yet some governments continue to push for its inclusion.
Before genomics techniques, the dark ocean was a black box, because microorganisms from this environment refuse to grow in research laboratories, said Ramunas Stepanauskas, a senior research scientist at Bigelow Laboratory and director of the Single Cell Genomics Center. Now, using contemporary tools that were developed by our group, we can open this black box and understand who is living there, what they are doing, and how they are doing it.. The research behind this Science paper began with an effort to identify new groups of microscopic organisms in the mesopelagic zone. According to Pachiadaki, the previously accepted explanation for carbon capture in the dark ocean did not seem correct under close inspection. Archaea, a much more abundant group of microorganisms in the dark ocean, had been credited with doing most of the work, but the math just didnt add up. The team set out to discover the unidentified organisms that were the true champions of carbon dioxide capture in the vast dark ...
