Continental rifts are important sources of mantle CO2 to Earth’s atmosphere. Deep carbon is stored for long periods in the lithospheric mantle, and thus rift CO2 flux depends on lithospheric processes that control melt and volatile transport. Here, we propose that displacement of carbon-enriched Tanzania cratonic mantle concentrates deep carbon below parts of the East African Rift System. The data set contains CO2 flux data from Natron, Mantra and Balangida Basins, Tanzania and noble gas and C isotope data from springs in the region.
