Soil Carbon Data to Evaluate Land Management Impacts


Soil Carbon Data

Soil organic carbon (SOC) changes estimated in GREET’s Carbon Calculator from Biofuels Production can be refined by using a database of regional variations in land use and management changes and their impact on SOC changes and associated GHG emissions for
