Short summary
To better understand why atmospheric carbon dioxide has changed over the course of Earth's history, we analyze carbon dissolved in the ocean in a state-of-the-art model. While primary producers in the surface ocean are important to the global carbon cycle, the carbon in the ocean and atmosphere are not in equilibrium in most places, and our results indicate that the degree of this disequilibrium, which has previously been largely ignored in similar studies, could be just as significant.
