Carbon cycle science is the science of cycling of carbon through Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere. Understanding the underlying processes has taken on a new urgency because of industrial emissions of carbon dioxide and their effect on global climate. This talk will trace the evolution of carbon cycle science through the twentieth century and present the current state of the art.

Dr. James Christian is a Research Scientist with the Government of Canada and an expert in ocean biology and chemistry, Earth observation, and the global carbon cycle.

This event is free and open to the public.
