One hectare can contain 50 tonnes of living microorganisms [that are sequestering
The 2 community mitigation strategies modeled were school closings with home sequestering of children and teenagers [less than or equal to] 18 years of age (hereafter called child sequestering) and home sequestering of all community members (hereafter called community sequestering).
Control scenarios are an unmitigated base case (epidemics without mitigation strategies implemented) or continuation of strategies for the epidemic duration (child sequestering or community sequestering implemented at the 10-diagnosed case trigger and ended when the last incident case is recovered or dead).
He calculated from the soil test and other results that the perennial grasses and tagasaste were sequestering
7 t/ha of C[O.sub.2] per year more than traditional annual pastures.
Geological storage involves sequestering
C[O.sub.2] in rocks.
However, he says, "I do have to say that of the many technologies we've looked at for capturing and sequestering
C[O.sub.2], the CES technology seems the best and most economical to produce pure C[O.sub.2].
Typically, as with other pandemic models, the authors model different rates of compliance, but each rate is assumed to remain static for the duration of sequestering
(e.g., 50% compliance during 40 days of sequestering
But wood products--lumber--help by sequestering
carbon while replacing steel, concrete, and plastics, the manufacture of which is more fossil fuel intensive.
States like Iowa and Wisconsin are leading the way in preliminary research, studying how farmers could be convinced that sequestering
soil beneath their fields is in their best interests.
Even if successful at sequestering
carbon, fertilizing the ocean could have unintended consequences.
Few companies today are willing to take on the extra expense of separating and sequestering
carbon dioxide, but researchers are working on techniques to boost the efficiency of the process and lessen its cost (see sidebar).
This disturbing conclusion emerges from a study of how tiny ocean plants called plankton affect the sequestering
of carbon dioxide in the northeastern Atlantic.
