A calculated transfer of ~530 Gt of 14C depleted carbon is required to produce the deglacial coeval rise of carbon in the atmosphere and terrestrial biosphere and in soils. While a number of key processes underlying this transfer have been identified, Earth-system models are still unable to fully reproduce it. Most likely, this transfer was linked to changes in the ventilation of the deep ocean, which by far contains the largest carbon pool on the Earth’s surface.
Accordingly, the failure to correctly represent the carbon transfer in complex models raises several important scientific questions, in particular,
On Thursday, 19 March, 8 pm to 9.30 pm, Professor Thomas Stocker will hold a public lecture on "Klimawandel: Zu spät für 2° Celsius?" (Climate change: Too late for 2° Celsius?") in German.
