Abstract/Contents:"The increasing concentration of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere is strongly related to the global warming (IPCC, 2013). Among them, carbon dioxide (CO2) originating from human activities is the largest contributor to the total radiative forcing. Promoting soil C sequestration in managed ecosystems has been proposed as an effective GHGs mitigation strategy (LAL et al., 1999). Therefore to understand the mechanisms driving the carbon (C) assimilation on terrestrial ecosystems became extremely important in order to minimize the C footprint of agriculture and turfgrass management practices. Several studies investigated the potential of turfgrass ecosystems to sequester C (QIAN and FOLLET, 2002; BANDARANAYAKE et al., 2003; HUYLER et al., 2013; SELHORST and LAL, 2013). However their role in continental and Mediterranean climates is not yet clearly understood because environmental factors and management practices can strongly influence their overall C balance. Several approaches have been used to estimate C sequestration in turfgrass: analysis of soil organic carbon (SOC) changes over time, isotopes techniques, remote sensing, measurement and modeling of gas exchange. The objective of this study was to assess the turfgrass C sequestration, through the estimate of the net CO2 exchange between the atmosphere and the ecosystem (Net Ecosystem Exchange, NEE) during one year, in a golf course in northern Italy."
