TSCD, which uses photosynthesis — part of the natural carbon cycle — to create organic matter that is stored in vegetation and soils, differs from CO2 mitigation technologies that focus on capturing and permanently storing human-generated emissions. Contents of this manual: Intro.; Terrestrial Carbon; Land Use/Land Cover in the U.S.; Management Practices; Monitoring, Verification, and Accounting for TSCD; Regional TSCD Partnership Terrestrial Field Tests; Trading of TSCD; Conclusion. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.”
