A European Science Foundation Network on mantle carbon and carbon cycling 2000- 2003

Mantle-derived carbonate and carbon-bearing rocks are direct indicators of the Earth's solid carbon cycle, whose periodic activity transfers key elements from the mantle to the crust, releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and represents a significant part of the Earth's total carbon budget.
