Abstract

Research into the causes and consequences of climate change caused by change to atmospheric trace gas levels shows the relevance of these changes to human life. A model was developed to estimate the levels of carbon dioxide and methane throughout the earth. This data was used to predict ocean pH, and global temperature change. The model was used to demonstrate the efficacy of Mineral Carbon Sequestration as well as biodiesel as methods to mitigate the effects of increased gas concentrations.
