    ..Radiocarbon dating indicates that 30 to 50% of the carbon initially present in the Himalayan rocks is conserved during the erosion cycle. Graphitization during metamorphism thus stabilizes carbon in the crust over geological time scales...

    Nancy Universite, CRPG CNRS INSU, BP 20, 54501 Vandoeuvre Les Nancy, France
    Nature 450:407-10. 2007
    ..Active orogenic systems generate enhanced physical erosion and the resulting organic carbon burial buffers atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, thereby exerting a negative feedback on climate over geological timescales...
