    Durizzo, Kathrin; Günther, Isabel; Asiedu, Edward; et al. (2021)

  6. Early Roots of the Carbon Cycle Concept 

    Galvez, Matthieu E. (2013)
    Deep Carbon Observatory
    The carbon cycle is important because it connects the atmosphere, ocean, biosphere and the solid Earth. Back in the late 18th century, the existence of a large scale connection between all components of the Earth was well grounded. One of the first ‘stage’ where a carbon rotation was described, by chemist A.L. Lavoisier, was a theater in the heart of Paris.
