Marin Agricultural Land Trust – Enhancing Carbon Sequestration

The Marin Carbon Project is working to respond to the rapid pace of global climate change by enhancing carbon sequestration in rangeland, agricultural, and forest soils through applied research, demonstration, and implementation. These efforts aim to enable landowners and land managers of agricultural ecosystems to serve as stewards of soil health and to undertake carbon farming in a manner that can improve on-farm productivity and viability, enhance ecosystem functions, and stop and reverse climate change.

Carbon Sequestration

“Carbon sequestration” describes the process of capture and long-term storage of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) in a stable state. Direct carbon sequestration occurs in plants as they photosynthesize atmospheric CO2 into biomass, which means it is stored in “sinks” instead of being released into Earth’s atmosphere

NASA pinpoints cause of Earth’s recent record carbon dioxide spike

A new NASA study provides space-based evidence that Earth’s tropical regions were the cause of the largest annual increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration seen in at least 2,000 years.

Wetlands

Avoiding coastal wetland conversion and enhanced management can be low-cost climate mitigation pathways, leading to reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

Learn More About Biological Carbon Sequestration

Biological carbon sequestration refers to the assimilation and storage of atmospheric carbon in vegetation, soils, woody products, and aquatic environments. Fluxes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHG) in ecosystems are a function of natural ecosystem processes and anthropogenic activities.

Focus on Carbon Removal a “High-Stakes Gamble”

A new paper from Science highlights how carbon removal shouldn’t be treated as a cure-all for climate change because the future of humanity can’t rely on untested technology.

Forests

Avoiding forest conversion and supporting restoration are relatively low-cost mitigation pathways that are ready to be put into practice on forestlands throughout the United States.

Forest Carbon

Forest growth provides and important carbon sink. The efficient management of forests for carbon sequestration is closely related to sustainable and ecological forestry practices that use nature as a model.

Pacific Forest Trust: Carbon Projects to Mitigate Climate Change

The Pacific Forest Trust is a pioneer of approaches and standards used to create forest climate policies including carbon emissions reductions or offset projects which harness and protect the natural ability of forests to accumulate and hold carbon, acting as carbon “sinks” and providing essential climate benefits.

Carbon Markets

In the United States, several land trusts are already engaging in the carbon market. Advocacy efforts that support the development of legal frameworks that enable cap and trade or carbon offsets can further expand these programs throughout the United States and connect to international efforts to decrease carbon emissions through market mechanisms.
