A Surprising Carbonate Reversal at Liquid Interfaces

Human respiration and the carbon cycle involve CO2 dissolving in water, producing carbonate ions at liquid interfaces. For a picture of such interfaces, scientists measured the depth profile of carbonate ions in water at the Advanced Light Source. An unexpected reversal in the profile raises questions relevant to topics ranging from carbon sequestration to biomedical research. More>
