The Deep Carbon Observatory

The Carbon Mineral Challenge is sponsored by the Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO), a 10-year quest to unlock the secrets of inner Earth through investigations into life, energy, and the fundamentally unique chemistry of carbon.

Scientists, members of the press, and others with an interest in deep carbon science are encouraged to join the DCO Science Network. As a member of the network you can discover like-minded researchers working in the field, add your name to the directory of world-class deep carbon scientists, and share data with other DCO scientists. The Welcome Page offers a good overview of the services on the Deep Carbon Observatory Website.
