Main research questionPeat soils contain large carbon stocks. Drainage of soils for agricultural use causes large CO2-emissions. The conservation of carbon in peat soils is important for climate change mitigation.
Carbon sequestration in soils is a negative emission technology that contributes to climate change mitigation. The aim of CarboSeq is to estimate the feasible soil organic carbon (SOC) sequestration potential of different management options considering technical and economic constraints in the different regions and countries in Europe.
Soil organic carbon sequestration potential of agricultural soils in Europe
Our soils provide us with not only food, but also a wide range of ecosystem services such as carbon storage and water storage. Due in part to the changing climate and intensive soil management, several of these services have been under pressure for years. Europe wants to change that with EJP SOIL.
