Spatial and temporal drivers of savanna carbon sequestration

Spatial and temporal drivers of savanna carbon sequestration

Integration of large data sets describing savanna water use and carbon sequestration with climate, soil type, disturbance regime (fire) to model climate change impacts on savanna structure and carbon storage potential.While carbon storage may be modest in tropical savannas, uptake is fast and the savanna biome is vast.Understanding how disturbance and climate change may shift carbon storage is essential to assess the savanna role in greenhouse gas mitigation schemes.
