Arctic Carbon a Potential Wild Card in Climate Change Scenarios

The Arctic Ocean receives about 10 percent of Earth's river water and with it some 25 teragrams [28 million tons] per year of dissolved organic carbon that had been held in far northern bogs and other soils.

Now an international team of U.S. and German scientists, including some funded by the National Science Foundation, have used carbon-14 dating techniques to determine that most of that carbon is fairly young and not likely to affect the balance of global climate. http://www.nsf.gov/od/lpa/newsroom/pr.cfm?ni=83
