Study: Forests Are Main Land-Based Carbon Sink

July 21, 2011

The study, "A Large and Persistent Carbon Sink in the World's Forests," was conducted by the U.S. Forest Service’s Northern Research Station and a team of scientists from around the world. Published July 14 in the journal Science online, the study’s findings highlight the central role forests play in removing carbon from the atmosphere, suggesting that forests account for almost all of the world's land-based CO2 sequestration.
