THE CARBON CYCLE: GENERAL
"The Past and Present Cycle of Carbon on Our Planet," H.G.
Schlegel (Inst. Mikrobiol., G. August Univ., Göttingen, Ger.), FEMS
Microbiol. Rev., 103(2-4), 347-354, Dec. 1992.
An overview of the carbon cycle precedes discussion on how the anthropogenic
contribution to atmospheric CO2 can be reduced by relying on renewable sources
of starch, sugar and fats to produce the materials we currently derive from
"Global Distribution of Photosynthetically Active Radiation as
Observed from Satellites," R.T. Pinker (Dept. Meteor., Univ. Maryland,
2213 Computer Sci. Bldg., College Pk. MD 20742), I. Laszlo, J. Clim.,
5(1), 56-65, Jan. 1992.
Discusses how photosynthetically active radiation, which strongly influences
net primary productivity and carbon cycling, can now be measured on a global
scale using ISCCP data.
