Buesseler, Ken O. (2012): Biogeochemistry: The great iron dump

Buesseler, Ken O. (2012): Biogeochemistry: The great iron dump. In: Nature 487 (7407), S. 305–306.

The author discusses the EIFEX experiment. "The discovery that marine algal blooms deposit organic carbon to the deep ocean answers some — but not all — of the questions about whether fertilizing such blooms is a viable strategy for mitigating climate change"

Goeppert, Alain; et al. (2012): Air as the renewable carbon source of the future: an overview of CO2 capture from the atmosphere

Goeppert, Alain; Czaun, Miklos; Surya Prakash, G. K.; Olah, George A. (2012): Air as the renewable carbon source of the future: an overview of CO2 capture from the atmosphere. In: Energy Environ. Sci. 5 (7), pp. 7833-7853.

"The present article reviews methods developed for the capture of CO2 directly from the air as well as their advantages and drawbacks. While strong bases such as sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide could be used, their regeneration is energy intensive, requiring high temperatures."
