Ocean alkalinity enhancement, a potential approach for atmospheric carbon dioxide removal, can involve introducing milled mineral particles into the ocean to promote carbon dioxide uptake. This paper estimates effective settling velocities in the presence of these instabilities and assess the implications for the efficacy of this particular Ocean alkalinity enhancement approach for CDR.
