Documentary Film Crew Went to Leye-Fengshan UNESCO Global Geopark to Shoot the Exterior

From October 27th to 29th, the film crew of the Carbon Cycle Decryption of the Ministry of Natural Resources and the expert team of the Institute of Karst Geology of the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences came to Leye-Fengshan UNESCO Global Geopark for location filming.

The film crew and the team of experts have come to Leye-Fengshan UNESCO Global Geopark Museum, Luomei Lotus Cave, Dashiwei Tiankeng, Maoqidong, Baidong Tiankeng and Buliuhe Natural Bridge for location shooting activities.

    According to Gao Man, the writer and director of Carbon Cycle Decryption, it is a six-episode popular science documentary filmed by the Ministry of Natural Resources. The project will introduce greenhouse gases from global climate change as an entry point, through the form of camera recording and popular science video creation, explaining the relationship between atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and climate change, and revealing the cycle of carbon in the Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. Professor Cao Jianhua, a researcher at the Institute of Karst Geology of the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences and executive deputy director of the UNESCO International Karst Research Center, believes that the formation of Leye-Fengshan UNESCO Global Geopark is mainly based on three elements: one is Leye-Fengshan located in the upper part of the slope of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau inclined to the Guangxi Basin; the second is the deposition of a thick continuous carbonate formation in the area; the third is the abundant rainfall and carbon dioxide, and the driving force of carbonate rock dissolution and weathering. The dissolution and weathering process of carbonate rock is also the process of karst carbon cycle. The dissolution of carbonate rock transfers a large amount of atmospheric/soil carbon dioxide into the water body to form bicarbonate ion in it. Half of the carbon in the bicarbonate ion comes from the atmosphere/soil, half from carbonate rocks. Therefore, a large amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere/soil is consumed during the formation of Leye-Fengshan karst landform, forming karst carbon sink effect.
