CO2 Capture by Pumping Surface Acidity to the Deep Ocean 0122 

Southern Ocean Is Absorbing Carbon, Net 0122 - Lots of wave action mixes oxygen down.  Plus cold water absorbs gases better than warmer water.

U.S. Experts Endorse Research on Ocean Carbon-Removal Strategies 1221

How the Humble Salp Is Helping to Fight the Climate Crisis 0621 - Salps, jellyfish and other gelatinous creatures such as comb jellies remove up to an estimated 6.8 billion tonnes of carbon each year from seas around the world.  Of that, some 2 billion tonnes of the carbon is thought to fall to the seafloor, where it stays locked up and out of harm’s way.

Petrifying Climate Change 0621 - Seawater contains a lot of calcium and magnesium.  When the calcium or magnesium ions combine with CO2, they form calcite or magnesite.  This changes CO2 to a mineral, rock as it were.  The chemical reaction is similar to how many marine organisms build their shells.  The research team is using electricity to drive this reaction.

Prairies of the Sea 1120 -Sea grassees store up to 18% of the ocean’s carbon sequestration, even though they cover only about 0.1% of the ocean floor.
