SONATA PI and founder of the Global Carbon Budget, Corinne Le Quéré, recently featured on BBC Radio 4’s The Life Scientific discussing the global carbon cycle.
Corinne highlighted her Southern Ocean paper published in the journal Science in 2007, explaining how the earth’s natural carbon sinks were reacting to climate change affecting their ability to absorb new carbon. The research showed that the carbon stores were not as stable as previously though. In the Southern Ocean over a 50-year period, and still now, the wind has increased, affecting the ocean circulation and the carbon sink in that region. Listen to the interview with Corinne here.
