On March 22, 2011, The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation approved the funding for the $1.5 million Reservoirs & Fluxes Directorate proposal titled "Earth's Deep Carbon Cycle I - From Surface to Depth and Back Again.” The proposal presents an interactive mixture of seven projects (with PIs from USA, Australia, UK, and France), which will help shape a new understanding of deep carbon fluxes. These projects combine high-pressure, high-temperature experiments with cutting-edge analytical methods, including new technology development to measure carbon by complimentary direct and indirect methods both in the field and the laboratory.
