ES.3. Total Carbon Budget of North American Aquatic Ecosystems
This figure appears in chapter ES of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report report.
Figure ES.3: Flux estimates, in teragrams of carbon (Tg C) per year, are derived from Ch. 13: Terrestrial Wetlands, p. 507; Ch. 14: Inland Waters, p. 568; Ch. 15: Tidal Wetlands and Estuaries, p. 596; and Ch. 16: Coastal Ocean and Continental Shelves, p. 649. Carbon exchanges with the atmosphere are limited to carbon dioxide (CO2) except for terrestrial wetlands, which include CO2 and methane. Arrows leading from the atmosphere to different aquatic ecosystem compartments imply a loss of atmospheric carbon from the atmosphere to the ecosystem (a carbon sink). Arrows leading from the ecosystem to the atmosphere imply a loss of carbon from the ecosystem to the atmosphere (a carbon source). Horizontal arrows refer to transfer of carbon between ecosystems. Changes in some reservoir sizes are provided inside the boxes with deltas (Δ). Asterisks indicate that there is 95% confidence that the actual value is within 10% (*****), 25% (****), 50% (***), 100% (**), or >100% (*) of the reported value.
