Reply letter to Munoz et al. 'on the importance of time in carbon sequestration in soils and climate change mitigation'-Keep carbon sequestration terminologies consistent and functional

Don, Axel; Seidel, Felix; Leifeld, Jens; Kaetterer, Thomas; Martin, Manuel; Pellerin, Sylvain; Emde, David; Seitz, Daria; Chenu, Claire


Munoz et al. (2024) raised concerns regarding our recent contribution and the definition of the term C sequestration in soils (Don et al., 2024). We performed a review and therefore based our analysis on existing definitions of C sequestrations, mainly by the IPCC. We recommend sticking with terminologies around C sequestration and climate mitigation, as outlined in our review, in order to keep it consistent and manageable.
