  • Emissions of carbon dioxide from inland waters to the atmosphere are a crucial link in the global carbon cycle. A comprehensive analysis reveals that this connection is much stronger than was previously thought. See Article p.355 There has been a growing recognition in recent decades that inland waters release considerable amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Until now it has been difficult to obtain global estimates of how much carbon is transferred in this way. This study combines new data… CONTINUE READING
