Estimating the Economic Value of Temporary and Permanent Carbon Sequestration Activities on Agricultural Land


  • Sperow, Mark


This paper estimates the value of carbon from soil sequestration and emission reductions from setting aside highly erodible land. Increases in soil carbon are estimated using the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change soil organic carbon inventory method and NRI data. Emission reductions are estimated using fuel use data from USDA-ERS.
