NDR Serie salty FiSH: „Klimawandel in SH – Die Kelpwälder vor Helgoland“

Philipp Jeß und Jonas Drescher (NDR Forschungstaucher), Video 20 min

In der 1. Folge ihrer neuen NDR Doku-Serie „salty FiSH“ beschreiben die beiden NDR Autoren in „Klimawandel in SH: Die Kelpwälder vor Helgoland“, wie Forscher:innen des Verbundes „sea4soCiety“ der deutschen Forschungsmission CDRmare mit verschiedenen Methoden (u.a. Video, Hydroakustik, Drohne, Fernerkundung) die Verbreitung der großen Braunalgen vor Helgoland erstmals großflächig kartieren. Ein weiteres Thema ist die Analyse von Wasserproben, um herauszufinden, was mit dem gelösten Kohlenstoff passiert, den der Kelp in seine Umgebung abgibt.  Längerfristig soll erforscht werden, unter welchen Bedingungen die Wiederaufforstung von Tangwäldern in der Nordsee am erfolgreichsten wäre, um die CO2-Aufnahmekapazität zu erhöhen.

Café Sci – Course Correction: Can Ocean CO2 Removal Reduce the Cost of Rising Emissions?

by Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, 1h 12 min, on youtube.com

„It is too late for emission reduction alone to save our society from facing major consequences from two centuries of carbon dioxide emissions. However, our planet has amazing ways it removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and scientists around the world are exploring approaches that amplify these natural ocean processes. Research is urgently needed to explore these potential solutions – and prevent uninformed decisions from causing unintended outcomes. Senior Research Scientist Ben Twining discusses some of the strategies being considered and shows the ways how Bigelow Laboratory scientists are working to inform global decision making.“

CDR Horizons: PrISMa – A Platform to Accelerate DAC Sorbent Discovery

by OpenAir on Youtube

In episode 6 of „CDR Horizons“, interview partners were Professors Susana Garcia Lopez and Berend Smit of the PrISMa project, a collaborative, multi-disciplinary technology platform that aims to discover the best sorbent materials for capturing CO2 from any source – including the air. PrISMa’s research scope for Direct Air Capture focuses on metal organic framework (MOF) sorbents, and the platform methodology combines expert screening with computer-assisted analysis to identify, synthesize, test and confirm the efficacy of MOFs for specific carbon capture and removal use cases and applications.

C2GLearn: How does the Working Group-II report of the IPCC 6th Assessment address CDR and SRM?

by C2G Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative

This C2GLearn webinar (ca. 1h) aims to provide expert overviews of how the Working Group II contribution to the Sixth Assessment report addresses Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) and Solar Radiation Modification (SRM)? Speakers’ presentations were pre-recorded and played to the webinar audience. Afterwards, the speakers participated in the live Q&A session and the audience was able to ask clarifying questions.
