Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 19)

Abstract

Carbon is the essential element for life. Yet, carbon in an easily mobilized form is rare on Earth. The atmosphere contains only 330 ppm of CO2 and the ocean 25 mg of dissolved inorganic carbon per kilogram of seawater.
