Artificial upwelling of nutrient-rich waters and the corresponding boost in primary productivity harbor the potential to enhance marine fishery yields and strengthen the biological pump for sequestration of atmospheric CO2. The authors conducted a large-scale off-shore mesocosm study (∼44 m3) in the oligotrophic waters of the Canary Islands to identify the community-level effects of artificial upwelling on a natural oligotrophic plankton community.

The authors assess accounting schemes in their appropriateness of assigning carbon credits and discuss the role of temporary carbon storage and present the various accounting methods for carbon credit assignment.

Artificial Upwelling (AU) of nutrient-rich Deep Ocean Water (DOW) to the ocean’s sunlit surface layer has recently been put forward as a means of increasing marine CO2 sequestration and fish production. The studies presented in this paper concentrate on the direct effects of the AU process on nutrient spread and concentration in the ocean’s mixed surface layer.

This study aims to reduce 1% of the annual emissions in the city of Izmir. In line with this target, this study worked on the integration of a liquid solvent-based DACS system. Primarily, the emissions within the city boundaries were calculated based on the calculation method of each sector.

The presented panel will feature legal academics from the U.S. and Europe to discuss how existing domestic laws in their countries could apply to the testing and deployment of different ocean CDR techniques (including ocean fertilization, ocean alkalinity enhancement, artificial upwelling and downwelling, and seaweed cultivation). Key gaps and shortcomings in existing laws are identified and possible reforms explored.

Alkaline materials are produced in numerous industries (cement, by-product slag from steel manufacturing, and red mud from aluminium production). This presentation will discuss new modeling results that suggest the potential of alkaline materials to sequester carbon dioxide could be several GtCO2 per year by 2100 as demand for materials increases to meet the needs of a growing and developing world population.
