Research focuses on the economics of land use change, the design of incentive mechanisms for water and carbon trading, carbon sequestration, and valuation of environmental resources. Sohngen developed a global forest and land use model that has been widely used to assess the implications of climate change on ecosystems and markets, and to assess the costs of carbon sequestration in forests, including reductions in deforestation. Sohngen leads OSU's Environmental Policy Initiative, which simulates and focuses systematic collaboration in environmental policy nationally and internationally.
