A conceptual framework for management of carbon sequestration data and models
The purpose of this chapter is to provide an overview of data management options and recommendations for different forms of
carbon sequestration, based on results of previous major data system efforts. Data management systems are essential for preserving
the primary information from carbon sequestration observations, experiments, and management activities, and making them available
for others to build upon. This chapter outlines a conceptual framework for carbon sequestration data management, a first step
in capturing the information that can lead to archives organized in a way that is useful for synthesis and integration activities.
This framework will also inform carbon resource managers about sequestration processes and efficacy from local to global scales.
