Carbon Cycle

Carbon Cycle

The Carbon Cycle uses an equilibration model to show how once fossil carbon is released into the air, it migrates into various carbon sinks - atmosphere, terrestrial plants, soil, ocean surface, and deep ocean. Explores changes in fossil fuel usage, net deforestation, and melting tundra. Part of Annenberg's multiple award-winning site, The Habitable Planet.
