Carbon Cycle:: Sections concisely summarize the history of the element and its presence on earth, from its discovery in 1594 to topics such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, fossil fuels, and carbon credits and sequestration.

Carbon Cycle 2.0:: Carbon Cycle 2.0 is the hypothetical future carbon cycle—one that allows humankind to produce enough energy to provide a comfortable existence to all of the several billion people on our planet—without the transfer of vast quantities of carbon from terrestrial reserves to the atmosphere. Getting to this hypothetical future isn't simple. Entirely new energy production, delivery, and storage technologies are needed. At Berkeley Lab, we’re app

U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program:: United States Carbon Cycle Science Program, providing a coordinated and focused scientific strategy for conducting federal carbon cycle research. The U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program is clarifying the changes, magnitudes and distributions of carbon sources and sinks, the fluxes between the major terrestrial, oceanic and atmospheric carbon reservoirs, and the underlying mechanisms involved including humans, fossil fuel emissions, land use, and cl
