Proceedings of International Workshop on Valuation and Sustainable Management of Soil Carbon Sequestration in Asian Countries

Soil is not only important for supporting the livelihood of the human beings, fauna and flora, but also an important storage of carbon. The soil organic carbon (SOC) pool is about 3.3 times the amount of the atmospheric C pool and 4.5 times the amount of the biotic C pool. SOC affects the soil fertility and in turns determine the plant and animal biomass.
The SOC pool to 1m depth ranges from 30 Mg ha-1 in arid climates to 800 Mg ha-1 in organic soils in cold regions as well as in the tropical peatland, with a predominant range of 50 to 150 Mg ha-1 in mineral soils. The SOC pool represents a dynamic equilibrium of gains and losses of C in soil system. Conversion of natural forest to agricultural ecosystems causes depletion of the SOC pool by as much as 60% in soils of temperate regions and 75% or more in cultivated soils of the tropics. Management of degraded soils may restock the soil carbon and, to some extent, mitigate the global warming and climate changes.
This proceedings is a compilation of invited papers presented in the international workshop on Evaluation and Sustainable Management of Soil Carbon Sequestration in Asian Countries, held at the IPB International Convention Center, Bogor, Indonesia, from 28 to 29 September, 2010. The invited papers cover ranges of topics from soil database and mapping of SOC, soil management and spatial and temporal changes of SOC by different land uses, as well as properties and dynamics of carbon in peatland areas
