Tyka, Michael; et al. (2021): CO2 capture by pumping surface acidity to the deep ocean

Tyka, Michael; Platt, John; van Arsdale, Christopher (2021): CO2 capture by pumping surface acidity to the deep ocean. Preprint. DOI: 10.31223/X5TK60.

"Here we present a method which relies purely on the redistribution and dilution of acidity from a thin layer of the surface ocean to a thicker layer of deep ocean, with the aim of reducing surface acidification and accelerating the former carbonate homeostasis."

Los Angeles Times: Clock’s running out on climate change. California says it’s time for giant carbon vacuums

"The art of industrial-scale carbon removal — sucking emissions from the atmosphere and storing them underground — has long been an afterthought in climate-action circles: too expensive, too controversial, too unproven."
