Carbon dioxide is very soluble in the oceans due to carbonate chemistry. The total dissolved CO2 in the oceans is about fifty times that in the atmosphere and the rate of uptake is limited by vertical mixing. However, in the upper oceanic layers where mixing occurs down to about 100 m due to winds, the total mass of inorganic carbon dissolved as CO2 is about equal to that in the atmosphere. This mixed layer plays a crucial role in the exchange of CO2 between the atmosphere and oceans on timescales of about 10 THE CLIMATE RECORD 21 years.

Geochemical cycles that lead to sedimentation of carbonates from weathering of volcanic rocks by reactions of CO2 dissolved in surface waters have characteristic timescales of thousands of years. 3 is a summary of the changes to the climate system that have occurred in the twentieth century, as recorded by the IPCC. Most striking are the dramatic increases in the greenhouse gases CO2 , CH4 and N2 O that have occurred since pre-industrial times. While tropospheric ozone has also increased, the abundance of the same gas in the stratosphere has decreased, most significantly between 1970 and 2000.
