CO 2 in Atmosphere CO 2 in Ocean Section 3-3 Figure 3-13 The Carbon Cycle Go to Section: Carbon Cycle
Carbon Sequestration Carbon sequestration refers to the provision of long-term storage of carbon in the terrestrial biosphere, underground, or the oceans so that the buildup of carbon dioxide (the principal greenhouse gas) concentration in the atmosphere will reduce or slow.
In other words.. how can we get the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and into other reserves where it won’t affect climate change
Research Sequencing Genomes of Micro-organism for Carbon ManagementSequencing Genomes of Micro-organism for Carbon Management: Sequencing the genomes of microbes that produce fuels such as methane and hydrogen or aid in carbon sequestration. This will enable the identification of the key genetic components of the organisms that regulate the production or capture carbon dioxide.
