According to the Ecological Society of America, carbon sequestration is the long-term storage of carbon in oceans, soils, vegetation and geological formations, and although oceans store most of the Earth’s carbon, soils contain approximately 75 percent of the carbon pool on land, ensuring soil’s major role in maintaining a balanced global carbon cycle. Through the process of photosynthesis, certain plants are able to retain and restore carbon into the soil, reducing the atmospheric content.
