Global Soil Organic Carbon Database (at 30 arcsec)

John Latham, Freddy Nachergaele, Henry Matieu, Rodrigo Vargas, Sergio Noce, Monia Santini, Antonio Bombelli & Tommaso Chiti
The most of the global organic carbon is stored in the forest soil. The large quantity of CO2 emitted from soil is a consequence of land use change, both through human activities (e.g. agriculture) or natural hazards (e.g. flooding, landslides, erosion). A net carbon loss from soils adds to the increase in the atmospheric CO2 concentration, probably leading to higher global temperatures. On the other hand, a net soil CO2 sequestration could help to mitigate...
