Students at Mercer County Senior High School, KY conducted an investigation on the amount of carbon stored in plants by observing abiotic factors such as surface air temperature, cloud cover, cloud type, and moisture content in soil. They have concluded that the higher clouds in the sky have an impact on the other sources such as CO2, water, and sunlight over the plants and trees.
