Albedo & Climate Change Mitigation - December 3-4, 2020
Can albedo change offset the climate benefit of carbon sequestrating practices?
The climate benefit of land use and land use change is often quantified through the change in biochemical aspects, especially soil organic carbon stocks and greenhouse gases emissions. However, recent studies suggest that biophysical aspects, such as albedo change, should also be considered to better estimate the radiative forcing of different practices.
