How it works. How it makes a difference. How you can help.
This class looks into the various ways that carbon and carbon dioxide are stored in the soil. We will discuss how current research is providing methods of soil and crop management that enhance these processes. It is becoming clear that the methods used in systems like Biologically Enhanced Agricultural Management and Climate Smart Farming could have a significant impact on lowering greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and, at the same time, develop richer and more drought-resistant soils.
Speaker: Scott Goode is a retired environmental scientist, who worked in water treatment, bioremediation, and modeling the role of environmental factors in soil chemistry. He is currently developing farm-based carbon sequestration technologies and post-petroleum farm practices. Scott is also an OSU Land Steward, contributing on the Advisory Committee and the Mentor Program.
