    "Closing in on Missing Carbon Sink" - ScienceDaily

    This article talks about forests and how much carbon dioxide they absorb per year.
    This reminds me of how almost all data I've seen is based on collecting air samples from ground level. That's interesting.

    Later on in the article it describes how this team used data from mid-altitude air samples, and worked with that.

    Thanks for the link MK.

    I once mentioned to Andre, when discussing the CO2 cycle and pre-Keeling measurements, that more the missing CO2 sinks of today were more of a concern than whether or not 19th and early 20th century CO2 measurements were accurate.
