To reduce uncertainties from upscaling spatial processes of the DeNitrification-DeComposition (DNDC) model for improving the definition of China's paddy soils SOC stocks (0-30 cm) and their changes from 1980 to 2008, a soil polygon-based modeling method was developed by integrating DNDC with the latest 1:1,000,000 soil database, derived from 1490 paddy soil profiles collected during the Second National Soil Survey of China. There were, however, large regional differences in sequestration outcomes. Increases in paddy soil SOC stocks were found predominantly in South, Eastern and Southwest China. Enhancement in the soil databases with higher resolution inputs should improve the C sequestration estimates of any area of interest
