We walk back to Södra Sandvik on the second day of our field trip to find out about the present-day state of the climate. Here, Goulven Laruelle, Research Associate at Université Libre de Bruxelles, focuses on the carbon cycle, how humans are perturbing it and how this drives global warming. 

More specifically, we focus on:

  • Terminology used to describe the carbon cycle
  • Natural and anthropic stocks and fluxes of carbon
  • The Land Ocean Aquatic Continuum
  • Ocean acidification
