Becker, K.; et al. (2013): Carbon farming in hot, dry coastal areas: an option for climate change mitigation

Becker, K.; Wulfmeyer, V.; Berger, T.; Gebel, J.; Münch, W. (2013): Carbon farming in hot, dry coastal areas: an option for climate change mitigation. In Earth Syst. Dynam. 4 (2), pp. 237–251. DOI 10.5194/esd-4-237-2013.

"We present a comprehensive, interdisciplinary project which demonstrates that large-scale plantations of Jatropha curcas – if established in hot, dry coastal areas around the world – could capture 17–25 t of carbon dioxide per hectare per year from the atmosphere (over a 20 yr period)."
