Anthropogenic release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere has been recognized as the primary agent in global climate change. This volume discusses the possibilities for limiting that increase by the long-term storage of carbon in soils, vegetation, wetlands and oceans. Each of the storage media is analyzed in detail to elucidate those processes responsible for the uptake and release of carbon. Several chapters address the practical prospects for deliberate interventions aimed at adjusting the balance in favour of uptake over release, for example, sequestration, while having regard to simultaneous changes in the various environments.
