Carbon Sequestration

Current Projects

Sam and Leila

Sam and Leila are working on a project with a local non-profit, the Katy Prairie Conservancy (KPC), and with the Texas Coastal Exchange (TCX). TCX aims to pay Texas landowners for sequestering carbon in their soils, but this requires a better understanding of the spatiotemporal variability of soil carbon and determination of whether we can actually measure soil carbon stocks. Sam and Leila sample soils from the KPC to study these foundational concepts essential to the effectiveness of TCX and to better understand soils along the Gulf Coast.
