Sinks for Anthropogenic Carbon
J. Sarmiento, N. Gruber 2002 Physics Today v55 n8 p30
This article examines the increase in anthropogenic carbon since the industrial revolution and the different sinks that are taking up the excess carbon. This increase is documented with data from ice cores and modern direct measurements. It also looks at different models for predicting future carbon partitioning between the land, ocean and atmosphere. The authors show that the choice of which model to use greatly affects the future predictions.
