Earth system processes and feedback mechanisms regulate the release and sequestration of carbon, and therefore changes in the global carbon cycle throughout earth history. Past global change events are marked by major perturbations to the global carbon cycle. In this talk, I will explore processes that control carbon sequestration during some of the major hyperthermal events since the end-Triassic, that were associated with the emplacement of large igneous province (LIP) volcanisms. Time periods in between the LIP-associated climatic events will also be explored to understand the background Earth system processes.
