I am a fourth year undergraduate studying Atmospheric Science. My research is in the field of biogeochemistry, and it concerns the ability of farmland to sequester greenhouse gases. I have applied ground rock (encouraging bicarbonate storage) and compost (allowing biomass growth) to the soil of Marin county farmland, and have been sampling soil in order to determine changes in the amount of soil carbon. I am hopeful that my research will provide farmers with a low-cost method to contribute to climate change mitigation
