Soil carbon stock plays an essential role in the global greenhouse effect and carbon circulation. This book calculates soil organic carbon (SOC) and soil inorganic carbon (SIC) storages and densities for 0–20, 0–100 and 0–180 cm depth intervals in Yangtze Delta region, China, based on the data of a 1:250000 regional geochemical survey and interrelated research in the early 2000s. The recent evaluation of SOC and SIC storages extends to greater soil depth than any previous research, and calculation of SIC storages is a new contribution to soil carbon inventories, which may contribute to base data to evaluate regional carbon sequestration potentials and to understand carbon circulation thoroughly.
