Title: LF532 - C-Stocks (soil organic carbon-stock changes in mineral soils 0-30cm) (LUISA Platform REF2014)


The C-stocks change indicator estimates the change in the stocks of carbon in organic compounds in mineral soils (Mt C year-1) and CO2 emissions or removals (Mt CO2 equivalent year-1) from land use and management changes for mineral soils.
