Zeng, Ning; et al. (2012): Carbon sequestration via wood harvest and storage: An assessment of its harvest potential

Zeng, Ning; King, Anthony W.; Zaitchik, Ben; Wullschleger, Stan D.; Gregg, Jay; Wang, Shaoqiang; Kirk-Davidoff, Dan (2012): Carbon sequestration via wood harvest and storage: An assessment of its harvest potential. In: Climatic Change. (published online) DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0624-0

"A carbon sequestration strategy has recently been proposed in which a forest is actively managed, and a fraction of the wood is selectively harvested and stored to prevent decomposition. The forest serves as a ‘carbon scrubber’ or ‘carbon remover’ that provides continuous sequestration (negative emissions)."

Ianson, Debby; et al. (2012): The effect of vertical and horizontal dilution on fertilized patch experiments

Ianson, Debby; Völker, Christoph David; Denman, Kenneth L. L.; Kunze, Eric; Steiner, Nadja Stefanie (2012): The effect of vertical and horizontal dilution on fertilized patch experiments. In: Global Biogeochem. Cycles. DOI 10.1029/2010GB004008

"Efficiency of carbon export decreases for increased size of fertilized patch - Lateral supply of silicic acid is critical to blooms in iron-fertilized patches - Carbon export resulting from iron fertilization is minimal"

Choi, Sunho; et al. (2012): Modification of the Mg/DOBDC MOF with Amines to Enhance CO 2 Adsorption from Ultradilute Gases

Choi, Sunho; Watanabe, Taku; Bae, Tae-Hyun; Sholl, David S.; Jones, Christopher W. (2012): Modification of the Mg/DOBDC MOF with Amines to Enhance CO 2 Adsorption from Ultradilute Gases. In: J. Phys. Chem. Lett. 3 (9), pp. 1136–1141

Paper on the chemistry of Direct Air Capture. "In this work, Mg/DOBDC is modified by functionalization of its open metal coordination sites with ethylene diamine (ED) to introduce pendent amines into the MOF micropores."
