Oceangoing study characterizes dark, sunlight-absorbing compound
Scientists use radiocarbon dating to analyze everything from the world’s oldest shoe to sediment samples that shed light on global climate change.
Just a fraction of the carbon that finds its way into Earth’s oceans–the black soot and charcoal residue of fires–stays there for thousands of years. A first-of-its-kind analysis by UC Irvine, Rice University and the University of Southern California also revealed how some black carbon breaks away and hitches a ride to the ocean floor on passing particles.
