2 + _

3 + _ -What -Where -When -How much

4 _ +

5 Volume Location Year Lots and lots of info SourceSink

6 On gallon turns into 172 cubic feet / 4.87 cubic meters of CO2.

7 1 ton of CO 2 takes up 19,000 cubic feet / 556 cubic meters space

9 Example: Width = 8.12 m Length = 8.12 m Height = 8.12 m Volume = 536 m³ Temperature = 15º C Pressure = 760 torr Weight = 1000 kg CO 2 GPS coordinates: North: 29º West: 082º Elevation: 64m Creating a Volumetric GPS Timestamp (VGT), or CarbonMap

10 v t ºC 0.22ºC 0.40ºC Use Temperature to Establish Relative Values

11 -Event Level -Source -Communicate

12 -Intercept Existing Data Streams -Volume x Carbon Factor -Lots of Data Out There -Standard Applications

13 Shumard Oaks (Quercus shumardii) on campus Tree 1: 7 years old Volume =.11 m3 Tree 2: 19 years old Volume =.69 m3 Tree 3: 32 years old Volume = 3.2 m3

15 Carbon Bank, stores amount of carbon in transaction, the source device, the sink, and the various people / organizations involved (edited for security) CREATE TABLE [dbo].[bank] ( [SERIAL] [int] IDENTITY (1, 1) NOT NULL, [original_mass] [int] NOT NULL, [net_mass] [int] NOT NULL, [compound_id] [int] NOT NULL, [producer_id] [int] NULL, [prod_owner_id] [int] NULL, [prod_affiliate_id] [int] NULL, [prod_manufacturer_id] [int] NULL, [prod_unit_price] [money] NULL, [sink_id] [int] NULL, [sink_owner_id] [int] NULL, [sink_affiliate_id] [int] NULL, [sink_manufacturer_id] [int] NULL, [sink_unit_price] [money] NULL, [date_entered] [datetime] NULL, [date_modified] [datetime] NULL, [sink_comment_id] [int] NULL - Yukon - Carbon Buddy - Exact Match

16 Much reduction is needed to reach stability Human emission rate in billion t/C/yr t Equilibrium Latent atmospheric C is about 188 billion ton Emissions the earth absorbs in billion t/C/yr

17 To reduce local emissions by 20%, how much is it worth? How much does it cost? 3 MtCO2e x 20% x $15/tCO2e = $9 million for ~ 10 years = $90 million total 3.46¢/l or 16.25¢/gl 3 MMTCO2/yr = 41 km²/yr Alachua County = 2623 km² or 192,528,200 tCO2 maximum absorption or 63 years

18 - Nice meeting all of you - Participate in Project Mark van Soestbergen tel fax Toward Climate Stability
