A short-rotation coppice in the UK sequesters biomass at the rate of 1 kg/(m2 yr2). Calculate the mean cooling over a typical 16-hour day in the summer. How much will the temperature of the surrounding air decrease due to this cooling? You may assume that the cooling affects air up to a height of 10 m and the heat capacity of air is 1 kJ/(kg K). Calculate the carbon sequestered by this coppice using the fact that 2 to 3 x 10-3 moles of CO2 are assimilated per mole H20 lost.
