SAGES: June - The Carbon Conundrum

 

From greenhouse gas to soil sequestration, understanding the role of carbon is central to the climate change conversation. A fundamental process is the carbon cycle, the biogeochemical mechanism by which carbon is exchanged among the water, land, atmosphere and organisms of the Earth. But how does it move between being a sink and a source, where in the landscape are our greatest stores, and how can we use this understanding to engineer climate solutions?


Join SAGES and the Centre for Sustainable Solutions (University of Glasgow) as part of their #SAGESStories event series to find out more and take part in the discussion. Learn from scientists across Scotland who are delving deeper into the carbon cycle. Participate in the panel discussion, and get answers to your carbon questions!

This event will begin at 7 pm on 30th June, and will be held online. It is suitable for most ages over 12, from young to not-so young adults. To sign up for a free place on the event, please register via the SAGES website: https://www.sages.ac.uk/junethecarbonconundrum/
