Deep Carbon: Past to Present is an edited volume offering a critical summary of what is known about deep carbon – how it moves within Earth, how much there is, what forms it takes, and how it originates. It provides a new understanding of the global carbon cycle, while addressing disparate but intertwined themes of energy sources, climate change, evolution of life, and mineral diversity (to name a few). Scientists and science students who read it will gain a new understanding of the interconnected cycling of carbon on Earth and why it matters to the past, present, and future of the planet.
Plus, this book is so much more. It comes with problem solving questions, access to datasets and models, serving as a ready-made teaching tool for integration into college curricula. The book is also of interest to anyone interested in how our planet works to stay in balance.
Deep Carbon: Past to Present is an open access volume that will publish in conjunction with the Fourth International DCO Science meeting in October 2019.
