Let’s compare the del 13 carbon isotope data, after removing the seasonal cycle with the same technique, shown in Figure 5.
This is an amazing chart! There are two surprises immediately apparent in the del 13 chart, in comparison to the bulk CO2 chart. First, there is a wide separation between the curves on the del 13 chart, whereas the bulk CO2 curves are in a narrow band. Second, the del 13 chart shows large waves moving through the data, whereas the bulk CO2 curves are smooth and nearly linear. Let’s explore these two differences.
Atmospheric CO2 Carbon Isotope Data:

The term “biosphere” is commonly used to describe all of the living creatures on earth; and the term hydrosphere is used to describe all of the water at the surface of the earth. In the same sense, I would like to propose a new term: “carbonsphere”, to describe the sum of carbon reservoirs freely exchanging carbon with the atmosphere. For the purpose of modeling CO2 in the atmosphere, and understanding interactions of the atmosphere, biosphere and oceans, it is important to answer the question: “How big is the carbonsphere”?
Figure 2, for reference, shows the bulk CO2 concentration, commonly called the "Keeling Curve". We can compare the rising bulk CO2 curve to the falling carbon isotope curve shown below.
