Caption: Soil carbon sequestration study. Soil scientist sampling greenhouse gas emissions from switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) in a long-term study of soil carbon sequestration. Soil carbon sequestration refers to the process by which atmospheric carbon dioxide is captured by plants and stored in the soil. Studies of the effect of agricultural crops as a carbon sink are carried out to help determine the impact of crops on climate change. This study started in 1998. Photographed in Nebraska, USA.
