CARBO N SEQUESTRATION IN ULTRAMAFI C ROCKS A new report released by the U.S. Geological Survey and Columbia University's Earth Institute high- lights the potential of a carbon di- e (C0 )-absorbing rock to clean oxid u p the air over the United States. Th e report maps the occurrence of ultramafi c rocks across th e country, an d scientists at th e Eart h Institute are conductin g ongoing research on the C0 -absorptio n process involv- ing this and other kinds of rocks, wit h the hope of someday captur- ing enough C0 to at least partially mitigate global climate change. Ultramafic rocks generally origi- nate in the Earth's mantle and can extend hundreds of miles beneath the Earth' s surface. Certai n geologi- cal processes can push formations of these rocks to the surface, where Close-u p of th e Eas t an d Wes t Coasts take n fro m a ma p of th e United they ca n naturally react wit h C0 to State s showin g area s of ultramafi c rocks (in red ) tha t potentiall y could for m limestone and chalk in a pro- absor b
