Rising to the Surface: Land-use and the return of ancient carbon

New research by F&ES graduates indicates that human land-use and soil disturbance are releasing significant quantities of ancient carbon from soils into aquatic systems. Some of this long-sequestered carbon enters the atmosphere and contributes to carbon dioxide accumulation.
