FROM VOLUME 7, NUMBER 4, APRIL 1994
- CARBON STORAGE IN BIOMASS
of Atmospheric Carbon Emissions Through Displacement of Fossil
Fuels," J.I. Zerbe (USDA For. Serv., One Gifford Pinchot
Dr., Madison WI 53705), World Resour. Rev., 5(4),
414-423, Dec. 1993.
Looks at the magnitude of sequestration in wood products, and
the presently overlooked opportunities to reduce fossil fuel
consumption through wood utilization.
Carbon Reduction by Urban Trees," D.J. Nowak (USDA For.
Serv., 5801 N. Pulaski Rd., Bldg. C, Chicago IL 60646), J.
Environ. Mgmt., 37(3), 207-217, Mar. 1993.
This broad analysis estimates that planting 10 million urban
trees annually for the next 10 years will offset <1% of U.S.
carbon emissions for that period.
Biomass Resources and Carbon Dioxide Trapping," P. Chelf
(Natl. Renewable Energy Lab., 1617 Cole Blvd., Golden CO 80401),
L.M. Brown, C.E. Wyman, Biomass & Bioenergy, 4(3),
Microalgal biomass production sequesters several-fold more CO2
per unit area than trees or crops, and its use for flue gas
capture doubles the energy produced per unit of CO2 released.
Absorption by Russian Forests," R.T. Karaban, A.O. Kokorin
et al., Russian Meteorol. & Hydrol., No. 1, 1-8
(Russian edition p. 5 ff.), 1993.
Calculates carbon storage potential for forests of various
natural zones and economic regions. Effective large-scale
planting depends on use of fertilizers and productive tree
Storage Potential of Short Rotation Tropical Tree
Plantations," P. Schroeder (EPA, 200 SW 35th St., Corvallis
OR 97333), For. Ecol. & Mgmt., 50(1-2), July
15, 1992. Analysis shows that rotation length and hence potential
to accumulate biomass are key factors in the ability to remove
carbon from the atmosphere.
