  1. Soil Carbon Management

    Economic, Environmental and Societal Benefits

    Edited by John M. Kimble, Charles W. Rice, Debbie Reed, Sian Mooney, Ronald F. Follett, Rattan Lal

    Better Manage Soil C for Improved Soil Quality In the United States, soil has fueled the availability of abundant, safe food, thus underpinning economic growth and development. In the future we need to be more vigilant in managing and renewing this precious resource by replacing the nutrients and...

  2. Soil Degradation in the United States

    Extent, Severity, and Trends

    By Rattan Lal, Rattan Lal, Thomas Iivari, John M. Kimble

    Soil Degradation in the United States: Extent, Severity, and Trends examines the magnitude and severity of soil degradation by different processes in the U.S., including water erosion, wind erosion, C depletion, soil compaction, salt build-up, and soil contamination. In addition, it addresses...

  3. The Potential of U.S. Forest Soils to Sequester Carbon and Mitigate the Greenhouse Effect

    Edited by John M. Kimble, Rattan Lal, Richard Birdsey, Linda S. Heath

    Much attention has been given to above ground biomass and its potential as a carbon sink, but in a mature forest ecosystem 40 to 60 percent of the stored carbon is below ground. As increasing numbers of forests are managed in a wide diversity of climates and soils, the importance of forest soils as...

  4. Agricultural Practices and Policies for Carbon Sequestration in Soil

    Edited by John M. Kimble, Rattan Lal, Ronald F. Follett

    The potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and global climate change is one factor driving agricultural policy development of programs that might pay farmers for practices with a high potential to sequester carbon. With chapters by economists, policy makers, farmers, land managers, energy...

  5. Assessment Methods for Soil Carbon

    Edited by John M. Kimble, Ronald F. Follett, Bobby A. Stewart

    Series: Advances in Soil Science

    Since carbon sequestration in soils reduces the amount of carbon available to the atmosphere, the Kyoto Protocols have heightened interest in soil carbon pools and their effect on carbon fluxes. Assessment Methods for Soil Carbon addresses many of the questions related to the measurement,...

  6. The Potential of U.S. Grazing Lands to Sequester Carbon and Mitigate the Greenhouse Effect

    Edited by Ronald F. Follett, John M. Kimble

    Grazing lands represent the largest and most diverse land resource-taking up over half the earth's land surface. The large area grazing land occupies, its diversity of climates and soils, and the potential to improve its use and productivity all contribute to its importance for sequestering C and...

  7. Global Climate Change and Cold Regions Ecosystems

    Edited by John M. Kimble

    Series: Advances in Soil Science

    Global Climate Change and Cold Regions Ecosystems provides information on soil processes and the carbon cycle in cold ecoregions as well as the soil carbon pool and its fluxes in the soils of cold ecoregions. Filling a void in this area of soil science, this resource explains soil processes...

  8. Global Climate Change and Tropical Ecosystems

    Edited by John M. Kimble, Bobby A. Stewart

    Tropical ecosystems - the regions between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn - play an important role in global processes, economic issues, and political concerns. In their natural state, tropical ecosystems support a large quantity of above- and below-ground biomass, and constitute a major part...

  9. The Potential of U.S. Cropland to Sequester Carbon and Mitigate the Greenhouse Effect

    By John M. Kimble, Ronald F. Follett, C. Vernon Cole

    This report assesses the potential of U.S. cropland to sequester carbon, concluding that properly applied soil restorative processes and best management practices can help mitigate the greenhouse effect by decreasing the emissions of greenhouse gases from U.S. agricultural activities and by making...

  10. Soil Processes and the Carbon Cycle

    Edited by Rattan Lal, John M. Kimble, Ronald F. Follett, Bobby A. Stewart

    Series: Advances in Soil Science

    World soils contain about 1500 gigatons of organic carbon. This large carbon reserve can increase atmospheric concentrations of CO2 by soil misuse or mismanagement, or it can reverse the 'greenhouse' effect by judicious land use and proper soil management. Soil Processes and the Carbon Cycle...
