Carbon Research and Protocol Development for Sierra Meadows

Developing Protocols for Carbon Credits

Long-term Goal

Develop a certified protocol providing for carbon and other ecosystem service “credits” to be quantified and transacted as a potential long-term source of revenue supporting future meadow restoration and
management.

Recent Accomplishments

  • Implemented research and sampling design to quantify greenhouse gases sequestration in coordination with project partners across 18 meadows throughout the Sierra and southern Cascades;
  • Initiated carbon protocol verification process and procedures;
  • Researched greenhouse gas and ecosystem services credit market requirements.

What We Will Achieve in 2016-17

  • Continue greenhouse gas data collection and analysis pre and post meadow restoration.
