Newswise: Solving the Mystery of Carbon on Ocean Floor

Solving the Mystery of Carbon on Ocean Floor

University of Delaware

Little bits of black carbon littering the ocean floor, separate and distinct from the organic carbon believed to come from the ocean’s surface. The source of that strange, and older, carbon has now been identified by UD researchers. The discovery is an important step in understanding the marine carbon cycle.
