Deep Carbon: Past to Present

I was fortunate to contribute the illustration for the cover of Deep Carbon: Past to Present published by Cambridge University Press. The book compiles 10 years of research by the greater Deep Carbon Observatory science community—summarizing the quantities, movements, forms, and origins of carbon in Earth through deep time.

The illustration on the cover is a simplified version of the figure I created to accompany a 2015 paper by Kelemen and Manning, depicting the quantities and movement of carbon through deep Earth. The design of the cover was handled by the publisher.

I also contributed a suite of figures for various chapters, some of which can be found here.

Deep Earth Haiku

One of the goals of the Earth in Five Reactions project was to create engagement products focused on Earth's key reactions. An example of one of those products was a mini website called Deep Earth Haiku. Visitors can view random haiku, submit their own poetic odes to Earth, and share the results.
