The behaviour of carbon in the environment is central to processes as diverse as the evolution of life, regulation of the Earth's climate, the genesis, discovery, and recovery of energy resources, and pollution of the biosphere. The University of Southampton has a strong international profile in these areas and many related fields of environmental carbon research.  This session showcases some exciting emerging areas and aims to bring together researchers and students who are interested in engaging in this interdisciplinary field.
