Carbon sequestration potential of different forest types in Pakistan and its role in regulating services for public health

This research was designed to determine the relationship between CS and the crown area, diameter at breast height, species richness, and elevation in various forest species of Pakistan's varied forest types, with the following objectives: to determine the effect of elevation on the trees' physical characteristics and resultant CS. Our results indicated that the highest CS potential was recorded for dry temperate conifer forests in i. e. , 52. 6 percent, followed by moist temperate mix forests and subtropical broad-leaved forests. The effect of SR on carbon sequestration has been negligible and significant. Quantifying the role of various forest species in carbon dioxide reduction leads to improved air quality, which positively impacts human health.

Carbon sequestration characteristics of two plantation forest ecosystems with different lithologies of karst.

Plantation of B. cinnamon plantation and C. funebris plantation was high in dolomite and limestone, respectively. Various lithologies, but the soil quality and carbon density of bare ground and plantation varied. The carbon sequestration rate of vegetation and ecosystem in B. cinnamon plantation was high in dolomite, moderate in limestone, and low in dolomitic sandstone. In karst areas, lithology is a significant factor in affecting ecosystem carbon pools, and plantation ecosystems have low biomass and low carbon density.

Effects of soil physics, chemistry, and microbiology on soil carbon sequestration in infertile red soils after long‐term cultivation of perennial grasses

Abstract: For carbon freeness and bioeconomy growth, determining the effect of perennial energy crop cultivation on soil organic carbon in marginal land soil is crucial. Conversely, PEC increased the percentage of soil meganu2010aggregates, geometric mean diameters, soil chelate iron, and aluminum oxides, as well as reduced soil acidity in the infertile red soils. PEC cultivation improved soil carbon stock by soil deacidification and enhanced soil bacterial activity, according to the partial least squares path model. This report, in conclusion, shows that PEC cultivation in marginal land can be profitable in terms of SOC sequestration potential and the underlying mechanism that drives SOC production. U201d cactus society, u201d, and u201cbacterial activity were among the key contributing factors determining soil C sequestration's improvement, according to u201d's study, which may have aided and promoted soil C sequestration's main positive factors determining soil C sequestration's favorable factors, including u201d, and u201d, as well as u201d.

Why do French winegrowers adopt soil organic carbon sequestration practices? Understanding motivations and barriers

Soil carbon sequestration activities on French agricultural land are included in the portfolio of actions on climate change mitigation that are open to policymakers in the field of climate change mitigation, and are crucial to the success of the u201d campaign, which was launched by France in 2015. Differences in motivations and barriers between SCS methods were discovered, and winegrowers themselves identified a need for enhanced transparency of SCS practices and more targeted policy incentives to encourage adoption.

Research on Promoting Carbon Sequestration of Urban Green Space Distribution Characteristics and Planting Design Models in Xi’an

Urban green space is thought to reduce the presence of climate change causes such as the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Promoting carbon sequestration efficiency in a small urban green space has become a real challenge for urban sustainability. This report explored the key factors that influence carbon sequestration in urban green spaces based on the findings and change in carbon sequestration in urban green spaces, as well as field surveys and remote sensing photographs. The carbon sequestration capacity in urban green space has decreased gradually alongside the change in forest structure, in a time series of the years 2000, 2007, 2014, and 2019, and was positively linked to hierarchical structure.

Impact Assessment of Soil and Water Conservation Measures on Carbon Sequestration: A Case Study for the Tropical Watershed Using Advanced Geospatial Techniques

The adoption of recommended soil and water conservation steps is a cost-effective way to safeguard natural resources. This report was conducted to demonstrate the appliability of SWC carbon control in watersheds. Following the introduction of conservation techniques in the watershed, average annual soil loss decreased from 18. 68 to 9. 41 kgC ha u22121 yr u22121 yr u22121 yr u22121, u22121. For 0u201330 cm depth of soil, deep trenches constructed on barren, wood, and horticultural land had the soil carbon sequestration rates of 0. 237, 0. 723, and 0. 891, respectively. Similarly, compartment bunds constructed on agricultural land have a soil carbon sequestration rate of 0. 612 t C ha yr u22121 yr u22121 yr u22121 121.

FlexibleNet: A New Lightweight Convolutional Neural Network Model for Estimating Carbon Sequestration Qualitatively Using Remote Sensing

Large datasets and parameter tuning are required for many complex and lightweight convolutional neural networks. CNN scaling-based model The new lightweight model is a CNN scaling-based model. From Sentinel-2 photographs, the new model was successfully estimating sequestered carbon in the aboveground forest biomass. We also created three different types of training datasets. The latest training datasets contained six categorical groups. FlexibleNet was either superior or equivalent to other lightweight or heavy CNN systems in terms of parameter selections and time requirements, according to the results. Moreover, FlexibleNet had the highest accuracy compared to these CNN models, according to these CNN estimates.

The Application of Biochar from Waste Biomass to Improve Soil Fertility and Soil Enzyme Activity and Increase Carbon Sequestration

The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of BC made in low-temperature pyrolysis from various organic waste materials, including one-month-old compost, pine needle mulch, pine cone mulch, pine cones, and maple leaves, as well as organic matter properties. In general, the use of biochar enriched the soil with AP, AK, and AMg raised the soil carbon content, increased the rate of nitrogen transformation, and affected soil enzyme activity.

Meta-Analysis for Quantifying Carbon Sequestration and Greenhouse Gas Emission in Paddy Soils One Year after Biochar Application

However, the full carbon reduction potential of biochar in paddy soils is still unclear. To give an overview of the quantified carbon reduction, a meta-analysis model of various carbon emission factors was developed, and the life cycle carbon reduction of biochar was estimated. The soil total carbon increase was mainly due to the biochar rate, although CH4 emissions were mainly due to the nitrogen fertilizer application rate. The total carbon reduction potential of biochar incorporation in Chinese paddy soils in 2020 ranged from 0. 0066 to 2. 0 Pg C, based on a biochar incorporation rate ranging from 2 to 40 t ha u22121. According to this report, biochar application has a significant ability to reduce carbon dioxide pollution, thus contributing to the carbon neutrality goal, but the predictions must be verified by field-scale long-term trials to confirm the results.

South Carolina forestland owners’ willingness to accept compensations for carbon sequestration

Abstract Background: Carbon sequestration through standardized forest management practices is an ecosystem service that helps minimize climate change and its impacts while still offering carbon credits for forestland owners to sell in cap-and-trade schemes. Our results show a higher likelihood of involvement of forestland owners with an interest in preserving forest ecosystems than those who do not. In addition, forestland owners who trust in climate change from scientists or government are more likely to participate more than those who do not. Of those who decided to participate, 28 percent are expected to implement improved forest management techniques, 28 percent are likely to adopt reforestation due to understocked forestlands, and 14 percent are likely to opt for avoided conversion, with 28 percent likely to adopt improved forest management techniques in the California's carbon market. Forestland availability should be considered for future studies in the state on forestland owners' participation in the carbon market, according to the state's 2030 involvement in the carbon market.
