Webinar: What are the soil carbon sequestration potentials of biochar and enhanced weathering?
September 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Keen public interest in soil carbon sequestration will test the scientific community’s ability to deliver effective soil management practices and durable scientific concepts. In this webinar series we will hear diverse perspectives on key questions that inform how to go about sequestering soil carbon in working lands.
In our sixth webinar of 2022, “Biochar and Enhanced Weathering,” we will discuss two emerging soil sequestration technologies with leading U.S. experts. Dr. Johannes Lehmann (Cornell University) will discuss the path ahead for biochar utilization. Dr. Dan Maxbauer (Carleton College) will describe the technical potential for crushed silicate rocks to sequester CO2 through enhanced mineral weathering.
This series is sponsored by the International Soil Carbon Network in partnership with the Midwest, Northeast, and Northwest USDA Climate Hubs, the American Geophysical Union, and the tri-societies–the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America.
