<題名> Carbon geodynamic cycle: A carbon isotopic retrospective

Carbon is considered as a key element in every aspect of life and environment in the Earth. Its isotopes have been used traditionally to understand the origin and to evaluate the processes involved in surface and subsurface cycling. The basic concept is that mantle (so called bulk silicate earth) has a homogenous carbon isotopic composition of 5 permil and biological processes have been instrumental in large scale fractionations. In my talk, I would like to prove that large scale carbon isotope fractionation processes are not restricted to low temperature conditions, but can also occur in deep Earth, and a bulk earth composition may be different from what we have been thinking of traditionally.
