Land Use and Carbon Management

SERDP research is under way to improve the understanding of carbon cycle dynamics across the various landforms and vegetation types that DoD manages. This knowledge can be used to ensure land and carbon management is compatible with maintaining military mission support, desired ecosystem services, and biological diversity.
