In this paper two kinds of the oceanic carbon cycle models , having been used in the world in-recent years, are briefly described: one is the simple box model; and the other contains the three-dimensional inorganic carbon cycle model based on the oceanic general circulation model , and its extension including the effect of the ocean biota . The emphasis of the authors is put on the three-dimensional model due to its completeness among the carbon cycle models available so far.
