World Ocean Review No. 8: The Ocean – A Climate Champion? How to Boost Marine Carbon Dioxide Uptake 1913 2560 Ocean Decade

With input from more than 20 scientists, the 8th edition of the World Ocean Review  (WOR 8) describes the urgent need for effective climate action and explains the mechanisms by which the ocean captures carbon dioxide and stores it for long periods.

It explores the potential for uptake of carbon dioxide by terrestrial vegetation, discusses why the oceans have become a key focus of the climate debate, and provides a detailed overview of promising ocean-based carbon capture and storage methods: from restoration and expansion of species-rich coastal ecosystems to interventions in marine chemistry (alkalinity enhancement) and carbon storage deep under the ocean floor. And finally, it considers key principles and rules which scientists believe must be put in place if society decides in favour of ocean-based carbon dioxide removal in the future.
