Rohling (2023): Marine methods for carbon dioxide removal: fundamentals and myth-busting for the wider community
Eelco J Rohling IN: Oxford Open Climate Change, kgad004, https://doi.org/10.1093/oxfclm/kgad004
This review outlines the basic operation of the marine carbon cycle in straightforward terms, with some simplifications, to help advance the debate among the wider community. Break-out boxes provide additional detail where desired, and references (and the sources cited therein) provide avenues for further study. The review then discusses two potential marine methods for atmospheric carbon removal that are thought to offer the greatest potential in terms of carbon removal mass: ocean iron fertilization and ocean alkalinity enhancement.
