[′kär·bən ‚pül]
(geochemistry)
A reservoir with the capacity to store and release carbon, such as soil, terrestrial vegetation, the ocean, and the atmosphere.

Given that acetyl-CoA is the two-carbon precursor for cholesterol biosynthesis, if we assume that the first steps in the synthesis of DLIF are conversion of the acetate carbon pool to cholesterol and then cholesterol to DLIF, one can predict that a maximum of 18 carbons are radiolabeled when acetate is used compared with 1 carbon being labeled when cholesterol is used as a precursor.
Conventional forestry measurements--tree height and diameter-- could help in calculating the first carbon pool, the woody growth above ground.
C[O.sub.2] evolution from each microcosm was therefore fitted to the nonlinear regression model dC[O.sub.2]/dt = C + [R.sub.0] x [e.sup.-rt], where C (in milligrams of C[O.sub.2]-C per day) is the constant that C[O.sub.2] evolution approaches with time, [R.sub.0] (in milligrams of C[O.sub.2]-C per day) is the initial contribution of the labile carbon pool to C[O.sub.2] evolution, r is the rate of exponential decrease in soil respiration with time (in days), and [R.sub.0]/r (in milligrams of C[O.sub.2]-C) is the total amount of C[O.sub.2] that can evolve from the labile carbon pool.

The soil was considered as the main organic carbon pool and more than 75 percent of terrestrial ecosystem carbon pool in the soil and in the global scale, about 4 to 5 times more than organic carbon pool in the living vegetation (Lal, 2004, Jassal, et al 2012; Varamesh et al, 2014).
From 1990 to 2004, the grassland degradation caused significant emissions of carbon to the atmosphere, which is estimated to cause an average loss of 6.466 MtC, 16.423 MtC, and 294.464 MtC from above- and belowground biomass and soil carbon pools, the main carbon pool in grassland ecosystem in TRSR (Table 6), in which slight degradation results in large portion of carbon losses and accounts for 64.37%, 52.04%, and 61.99% of the total loss from above- and belowground biomass and soil carbon pools, respectively.
Biological active carbon pool was made of organic glass, which is a column reactor.
However, less experimental evidence was available for the effect of thinning on the carbon pool in the mineral soil; soil carbon storage and soil respiration were found to vary in a few thinning studies [1].
This inorganic carbon pool consists of carbonate ions formed when carbon dioxide from the atmosphere dissolves in ocean water.
In West Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, a pilot REDD project lead by NGO Fauna and Flora International (FFI) in partnership with Australia's Macquarie Bank is seeking to work with local communities to manage their forests as a 'joint carbon pool'.
With its Chilean success and UN registration under its belt, the company's plan is now to begin using things like its proprietary C-Trade Carbon Pool to allow investors to put up money for projects.
Based on the difference between the TOC of native vegetation and the TOC of the cultivated systems, a carbon pool index (CPI) was calculated as CPI=TOC cultivated/TOC native vegetation.
