Steve Goldsmith (left), a doctoral student, and Anne Carey, an associate professor of earth sciences at Ohio State University, are studying the amount of carbon that is buried in the ocean during typhoons. Here Goldsmith and Carey stand on a bridge from which they took water samples during Typhoon Haitang in 2005. This picture was taken just post-typhoon. Photo courtesy of Ohio State University.

Ohio State University researchers and their colleagues are studying the amount of carbon that is buried in the ocean during typhoons. To do this, they sampled storm runoff from the Choshui River in Taiwan during Tyhpoon Mindulle in 2004. Here, the river begins to swell just as the typhoon was hitting the coast on July 1 of that year. Photo courtesy of Ohio State University.
