Managing the Global Carbon Cycle

Credits: 3

Spring 2014: Time and location TBA


Managing atmospheric CO2 entails managing the global carbon cycle. This class starts with a short series of lectures on the processes and fluxes that make up the global carbon cycle. The remainder of the class takes a case-study approach to aspects of managing the global carbon cycle. Instructors and students critically evaluate portions of the global carbon cycle that are under stress or are part of the proposed portfolio for carbon management and sequestration
