Experimental study of carbonated mid ocean ridge basalt at 3.5-21 GPa : implications for the Earth's deep carbon cycle

Kiseeva, Ekaterina


The carbon cycle is one of the most important chemical fluxes of the Earth. It involves the entire planet from the atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere (the exosphere) to its deep interior. Carbon is released from the deep earth to the exosphere during volcanism as a result of CO{u2082} degassing from magmas, or during emplacement of carbonate-rich magmas such as carbonatites into the crust. The major carbon return cycle, from the exosphere back into the deep mantle, is via subduction of...[Show more]
