Abstract: The United States has agreed to join with the international community in reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to 7% below 1990 levels. To aid in this goal a Geographic Information System (GIS) based deterministic model was created to assess the potential impact of different land-use strategies for mitigating Ohio's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and lowering its total CO2 budget. CO2 was chosen as the greenhouse gas of focus for this study because it has been identified as a significant greenhouse gas impacting the climate and it is the only greenhouse gas capable of being anthropogenically sequestered from the atmosphere.
