“Carbon sequestration is one of the potential ways we can mitigate climate change by pulling carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere,” said Dr. Lauchlan Fraser, whose research into soil carbon sequestration in grasslands was recently highlighted in The Western Producer.

In the article, Fraser explains he and his research team are using a remote sensing system to predict soil carbon across all BC grasslands. The system measures the greenness of plant, which is correlated with productivity.
