Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Aron Stubbins is a co-author of a research paper published in a major scientific journal. The article, “Global Charcoal Mobilization from Soils via Dissolution and Riverine Transport to the Oceans,” will appear in the April 19, 2013 issue of the prestigious journal Science, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's largest general scientific organization.

Stubbins and his colleagues concluded black carbon, formed from the burning of biomass and fossil fuels, may account for as much as ten percent of the carbon transported by rivers into the ocean. It also plays a significant role in controlling the balance of the three major carbon pools on earth — the soil, the ocean and the atmosphere.

That balance controls the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which in turn influences local and global climate.
