The great questions that challenge our understanding of the global carbon cycle are: What are the basic oceanic mechanisms that control the oceanic carbon reservoirs and the partitioning of carbon between the ocean and the atmosphere? How do these mechanisms depend on the state of the climate system and how does the carbon cycle feed back to the climate? What is the current rate at which fossil fuel carbon dioxide is absorbed by the oceans and how might this change in the future? The 11 peer-reviewed chapters in this book, all written by acknowledged experts in their field, are all linked by the overarching questions. Many significant areas are touched on and the book provides the most up-to-date synthesis of the state-of-the-art research in ocean carbon cycle and climate related science.

Industry Reviews

From the reviews:

"This edited volume represents the proceedings of a NATO Advanced Study Institute titled a ~The Ocean Carbon Cycle and Climatea (TM) ... . the book succeeds in its goal to be a reference a ] . the editors have succeeded in producing a volume that can serve as a valuable resource to any scientist a ] who wants to learn more about the interdisciplinary nature of the ocean carbon cycle. I know I enjoyed the opportunity to review this book and would highly recommend it a ] ." (Antonio J. Busalacchi, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, August, 2006)
