Carbon Cycle Institute Presents: Scientific Overview of Agricultural Carbon Research & the Implications for Climate
In response to the rapid pace of global climate
change, the work of the Marin Carbon Project and the Carbon Cycle Institute has
focused on measuring the effects of rangeland management practices and their
implications for carbon sequestration into permanent soil carbon pools. The
potential for rangelands to function as carbon sinks alters the carbon impacts
of the materials produced on these working landscapes-- and their subsequent
footprint shows us that 'climate beneficial' material culture has the potential
to mitigate the damaging effects of current human consumption practices.
Through applied research, demonstration, and implementation the team has
produced a body of research that will be explained and shared at this month's
application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors
(CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal
Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.
