Abstract: Dramatic increases in atmospheric CO2 from preindustrial to present day is the primary driver of climate change. The spatial origin of the CO2 growth rate and its variability is a complex function of anthropogenic, terrestrial, and oceanic processes. The tilt of industrial emissions towards developing countries has increased the uncertainty in foss ... [more]
