Permalink Global Map of Carbon Stocks in Soil Released on World Soil Day

On World Soil Day the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) released the Global Soil Organic Carbon Map, the most comprehensive global map to date showing the amount of carbon stocks in the soil. The map illustrates the amount of soil organic carbon stock in the first 30 cm of soil, revealing areas with high carbon storage that require its conservation, as well as regions where there is the possibility for further sequestration. According to FAO, this information can prove a powerful tool to guide decision-making on practices that aim to preserve and increase the current soil carbon stocks.
