This working paper documents the derivation of carbon sequestration coefficients for forest grown on Norwegian agricultural land. These figures will serve as input to the established model Jordmod – an economic model of the Norwegian agricultural sector. The purpose is to carry out greenhouse gas policy analysis. Associated with this paper is a GAMS program (The General Algebraic Modeling System), which computes the figures. The structure of this working paper is made to facilitate reading the program (given in Appendix A). The main issue is the expected woody biomass production on agricultural land. While there is plenty of data and information about wood productivity of forest land, agricultural land is not classified in terms of its abilities to produce woodwork. So our main point of departure is to look at forest land statistics, and from that, construct coefficients to be applied on the agricultural land.
