Soil and Tillage Research Volume 155, January 2016, Estimating carbon sequestration potential on U.S. agricultural topsoils. Highlights 2006 IPCC factors and IPCC approach are used to estimate soil C on agricultural land.
Soil C estimated from increased no-till and cover crops, no fallow and set-aside HEL. 2006 IPCC factors indicate soil carbon storage potential is 63.7 Tg C yr−1. Increased no-till provides largest increase in stored soil C of 35 Tg C yr−1. Soil C on agricultural land could offset 55% of CO2 emissions from agriculture. Abstract A better understanding of the potential for increasing soil carbon sequestration is necessary to estimate the greenhouse gas emission offset potential from agricultural soils.

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been identified as a potential strategy in combating climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from major industrial uses in California.
Carbon Capture and Storage refers to the capture, or removal, of CO2 at large industrial sources and its subsequent compression, transport, and injection into the subsurface for long term or permanent storage. CCS is one option in a portfolio of mitigation tools to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; other technologies such as energy efficiency and renewable energy will remain cornerstones of California's efforts to control greenhouse gases. If CCS is to play a role in achieving California's greenhouse gas reduction goals, the statutory and regulatory ambiguities must be addressed and a consistent policy framework established. Other state agencies interested and involved in the issue are the California Department of Conservation and the California State Water Resources Control Board. Panel Members.

Climate and Land Use Change The term "carbon sequestration" is used to describe both natural and deliberate processes by which CO2 is either removed from the atmosphere or diverted from emission sources and stored in the ocean, terrestrial environments (vegetation, soils, and sediment), and geologic formations.
Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) are working to assess both the potential capacities and the potential limitations of the various forms of carbon sequestration and to evaluate their geologic, hydrologic, and ecological consequences. In accordance with the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, the USGS has developed scientifically based methods for assessment of biologic and geologic carbon sequestration capacities.

Department of Agriculture (USDA) are providing information about the soil carbon dynamics that play a crucial role in lifecycle assessments of bioenergy production. These studies at the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), USDA's chief intramural scientific research agency, support the USDA priority of developing new sources of bioenergy. Retaining carbon in the soil—called carbon sequestration—significantly affects soil fertility and greenhouse gas emissions, so it has a major impact on the long-term sustainability of bioenergy crop production. In one study, an ARS team conducted a 9-year investigation examining the impact fertilizer and harvest treatments had on soil carbon sequestration in biomass crops. The team applied nitrogen fertilizer at three different rates to fields of perennial switchgrass and annual no-till maize to see how management practices affected soil carbon sequestration.
