Fate of Subducting Carbon

Studies of Exhumed Seafloor Show Fate of Subducting Carbon

Two new studies show that carbonate minerals in subducting ocean plates can dissolve and be funneled toward the surface once they encounter the heat and pressure of the mantle, creating carbon-rich minerals along the paths of these fluids. Some of the carbon, however, remains trapped in the sinking plate, where it likely stays in the mantle.
