About the book

Global climate change is intensifying and is increasingly recognized as a major challenge that requires an urgent response from scientists and other communities. Reducing the emission of greenhouse gases especially Carbon Dioxide is an essential process to mitigate climate change. Capturing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide is the process called Carbon Sequestration. Through this process, the atmospheric carbon dioxide is captured by trees, plants, and other vegetation through the photosynthesis process and stored in biomass and soils. Enhanced agricultural practices, reforestation, urban management could increase the carbon sequestration capacity. Carbon is now a priced environmental commodity in the global marketplace therefore the response from the government, and individuals’ commitments are increasing over the years. Better understanding and analysis of the current knowledge is essential in identifying key areas for research and development for the potential future use of carbon sequestration. This book addresses the latest carbon management approaches that will combat the increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

The proposed book hopes to target the understanding of carbon capture by various processes such as Physical, Chemical, and biological processes of carbon sequestration and the enhancement of natural carbon sequestration in different ecosystems for sustainable management of carbon. This book aims to provide valuable information for researchers in environmental sciences, carbon capture companies, policymakers, and the public.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
