Title: Deep Carbon Observatory
Url: https://deepcarbon.net/
Publisher: Deep Carbon Observatory
Description: The Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO) is an international community of approximately one thousand scientists dedicated to researching various aspects of carbon within the Earth across a wide range of disciplines. DCO's research is organized into four broad themes, each with a link on the main page: extreme physics and chemistry, reservoirs and fluxes, deep energy, and deep life. Scientists may like to explore DCO's data portal, which is a "searchable repository of data, datasets, and publications for helping to advance deep carbon science," as well as DCO's resources for early-career scientists. Science instructors may find their resources for educators helpful, which include downloadable modeling tools, educational videos, infographics, lectures, and webinars. Readers from all backgrounds may enjoy browsing content under DCO's science tab as well as their news section, which features hundreds of stories about DCO's decade of study. For example, in December 2018, DCO scientists reported that their research indicates the deep subterranean Earth contains far more life than previously believed, constituting "245 to 385 times greater than the carbon mass of all humans on the surface." Launched in 2009, DCO was established through seed funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
