Abstract

Regional accumulations of pedogenic carbonates were examined relative to precipitation, altitude, and temperature. The largest accumulations of pedogenic carbonates were found in calcic soils in warm, arid areas. In the naturally desertified lands of China, total stored carbon, including carbonate carbon, is 1,8-fold more than organic carbone alone. The carbon released through land desertification in China may be an important factor affecting changes in concentrations of greenhouse gases worldwide
