Public Lecture: The Secret Life of Carbon
The role of carbon in the atmosphere is well known, but what else does carbon get up to as it cycles through Earth systems? This public lecture, organised by the Edinburgh Geological Society and Dynamic Earth, gives the opportunity to hear first-hand about the role of carbon in soils, rivers and the oceans.
The speakers are:
Susan Waldron (Professor of Biogeochemistry, School of Geographical and Earth Sciences, University of Glasgow). Susan is an expert in the peats of Scotland and the role of carbon in soils and rivers.
Tom Wagner (Professor of Earth System Science, The Lyell Centre, Heriot Watt University). Tom will talk about carbon and nutrient cycling from land, through rivers to the oceans in the modern environment and in the past.
Dick Kroon (Regius Professor of Geology, School of Geosciences, University of Edinburgh). Dick specialises in scientific ocean drilling, exploring relationships between long-term climate change and carbon cycling.
