Carbon sequestration is the process involved in carbon capture and the long-term storage of atmospheric carbon dioxide. CO2 is naturally captured from the atmosphere through biological, chemical, and physical processes. Different land cover and land uses are characterized by a certain capacity for carbon sequestration. The classification into carbon sequestration capacity groups is mainly based on available indicators. According to European Parliament Regulation 1305 (EP, 2013), such indicators are described by climate, soil and terrain criteria. These influential variables are supplemented by physical, biological, environmental and ecological parameters. Available data should be used to estimate the potential carbon storage and the amount of carbon sequestrated over time for certain land cover classes. Based on this input, areas of interest are categorized and classified to different groups of carbon sequestration capacity.
