Studies were conducted to determine the potential magnitude of the soils of North America to serve as a sink for atmospheric carbon monoxide. In a series of field studies, soils were exposed in situ to experimental atmospheres containing CO. The influence of environmental factors was studied in the laboratory. The objectives were to (1) determine the potential CO uptake of soils under natural conditions in the major ecological habitats of North America; (2) determine what influence environmental variables exert on the potential CO uptake rates of soils; and (3) estimate the potential of soils of North America to serve as a sink for atmospheric CO.
