Figure 4

Soil organic carbon content changes from domestic land-use transitions. Legend: Solid and hollow markers denote transitions in AEZs 7 and 10, respectively. Forest, grassland, and cropland-pasture transitions are denoted by circles, squares, and triangles, respectively. Orange, red, green, and blue markers reflect transitions to corn, corn stover, miscanthus, and switchgrass production, respectively. These results were generated from surrogate CENTURY modelling runs with calibrated soil cultivation effect coefficients, feedstock yields that increase with time, and with erosion effects.
