The Carbon Cycle

D-S Schimel

Reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is imperative to stabilizing our future climate. Our ability to reduce these emissions, combined with an understanding of how much fossil fuel-derived CO2 the oceans and plants can absorb, is central to mitigating climate change. In The Carbon Cycle, leading scientists examine how atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations have changed in the past and how this may affect the concentrations in the future. They look at the carbon budget and the missing sink for carbon dioxide. They offer approaches to modeling the carbon cycle, providing mathematical tools for predicting future levels of carbon dioxide. This comprehensive text incorporates findings from the recent IPCC reports. New insights, and a convergence of ideas and views across several disciplines, make this book an important contribution to the global change literature. It is an invaluable resource for students and researchers working in the field.

What is the carbon cycle? - National Ocean Service The carbon cycle describes the process in which carbon atoms continually travel from the atmosphere to the Earth and then back into the atmosphere. Since our planet and its atmosphere form a closed environment, the amount of carbon in this system does not change. Where the carbon is located — in the atmosphere or on Earth — is constantly in flux.

carbon cycle - Planting trees to offset our carbon emissions does not work because this is the short term carbon cycle, which only stores carbon. The trees will absorb CO2 but then later return it back to the atmosphere. The best we can do is biochar (pyrolysis) that can store carbon for 100s of years. The ultra long term carbon cycle determines the ultra long life of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. It will

Carbon cycle Facts for Kids The carbon cycle is the way carbon is stored and replaced on Earth.Some of the main events take hundreds of millions of years, others happen annually. The main ways that carbon gets into the carbon cycle are volcanoes, and the burning of fossil fuels like coal and gas.Through most of history, volcanoes were the biggest source of carbon to the carbon cycle, but in the last hundred years, people
