Arctic Now Traps 25 Percent of World’s Carbon — But That Could Change

The arctic could potentially alter the Earth’s climate by becoming a possible source of global atmospheric carbon dioxide.? The arctic now traps or absorbs up to 25 percent of this gas but climate change could alter that amount, according to a study published in the November issue of Ecological Monographs . In their review paper, David McGuire of the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Alaska at Fairbanks and his colleagues show that the Arctic has been a carbon sink since the end of the last Ice Age, which has recently accounted for between zero and 25 percent, or up to about 800 million metric tons, of the global carbon sink.
