Abstract

In summary, important questions remain surrounding the role of pyrogenic carbon in the global carbon cycle, and we are only just starting to address some of these questions. It seems as though the fate of pyrogenic carbon in the environment depends strongly upon, not only the specific chemistry of the material itself, but also the depositonal environment in which it is emplaced. Spectroscopy is central to answering these questions, predominantly in the form of KC-SS-NMR and FT-IR, although it is the ntegraticn of several methodolo- ges that cffe's the most fruitful approach to understanding this missing link in the carbon cycle.
