An introduction to global carbon cycle management
Past and current human activities have fundamentally altered the global carbon cycle. Potential future efforts to control
atmospheric CO2 will also involve significant changes in the global carbon cycle. Carbon cycle scientists and engineers now face not only
the difficulties of recording and understanding past and present changes but also the challenge of providing information and
tools for new management strategies that are responsive to societal needs. The challenge is nothing less than managing the
global carbon cycle.
