Özet

The soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks of each geographical region based on the World Reference Base (WRB) soil classes of the country were determined seeking their contemporary and/or future use for national crop/soil use policies and for the credible assessment to mitigate atmospheric carbon dioxide and restore degraded soils. Once the SOC stocks are mapped, it is important to take the necessary measures for improving land management for increasing SOC stock and enhancing quality of agricultural soils. Total SOC stock of soil in Turkey is 9.23 Pg up to 0.7 m depth, and annual emission from the agricultural sector is 25.7 Tg C.
