Ever wonder how chemical reactions shaped the Earth into the only known habitable planet? Deep Carbon Observatory scientists debated this question during a lively forum and community-wide survey and came up with top five reactions central to Earth’s habitability (as well as three runners up).
The Earth in Five Reactions project leaders Jackie Li (University of Michigan, USA), Simon Redfern (University of Cambridge, UK), and Donato Giovannelli (CNR-IRBIM, Italy and Rutgers University, USA), along with project participant Jennifer Glass (Georgia Tech, USA), share how carbon plays a central role in making Earth habitable. Learn how these five reactions were selected, and how they are being used to synthesize and disseminate deep carbon knowledge and findings.
