We are excited to announce that Dan Kane has joined TerraCarbon as a Senior Manager of Agricultural Land Management. Dan will lead the agricultural land management practice at TerraCarbon and advise clients on the feasibility, design, and monitoring of programs that incentivize increased carbon storage in agricultural soils.
Dan is a leading soil scientist with extensive experience in applying the latest science and technology to measure soil carbon changes in agricultural lands. His past work and continued interest is helping develop cost-effective measurement tools that provide the basis for investments in improved soil management as both a climate mitigation and climate resiliency strategy. He has been an active contributor to several industry working groups, including at Open TEAM, Nori, and the Ecosystem Service Marketplace Consortium, focused on field methods, technology, and accounting approaches to measure soil carbon changes.
Dan is a PhD Candidate at Yale School of the Environment (expected completion in Spring 2021) and holds a Masters of Science in Plant and Microbial Sciences from Michigan State University.
