 Carbon sequestration is “the process of increasing the carbon content of a reservoir other than the atmosphere” (Reid 2005) ((Reid, W. V. (Ed.) (2005): Ecosystems and human well-being. Synthesis; a report of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, MEA - Millennium Ecosystem Assessment & WRI - World Resources Institute. Washington, DC.)) . Others define it as “the process of removing carbon from the atmosphere and depositing it in a reservoir” (UN 2014)((UN (United Nations) (Ed.)

-//In the AlpES project the term carbon sequestration is associated with CO2 sequestration. It is one of the eight ecosystem services AlpES focuses on within the context of alpine forests and bogs and their capability of CO2 sequestration. //+//In the [[wiki:​alpesbackground|AlpES project]] the term carbon sequestration is associated with CO2 sequestration.
