About this book

Describing a long-term carbon cycle, one that operates over millions of years, involving the transfer of carbon between rocks and the combination of life, the atmosphere, and the oceans. Berner's analysis has implications for such disparate subjects as the evolution of land plants, the presence of giant ancient insects, the role of tectonics in paleoclimate, and the current debate over global warming and greenhouse gases.

"This unusually readable research monograph addresses the long-term carbon cycle over the past 550 million years. Berner, a distinguished professor at Yale University, has drawn from decades of pioneering research experiences to give readers a detailed, balanced road map to carbon cycle modeling. Slender but dense, the book examines the processes that lead to the long-term carbon cycle and concludes with a chapter apiece on the evolution of atmospheric carbon dioxide and oxygen concentrations... The unique resource, well edited and with clear line graphics, is appropriate for graduate students and above and essential for carbon cycle researchers." --Choice
The author has elegantly addressed in great detail how the geological record can be used to interpret changes and processes affecting the long-term carbon cycle. He has done a marvelous job at combining and contrasting the literature to provide both succinct and comprehensive discussion detailing the historical interpretation
