Pan, YiWen; et al. (2019): A sea trial of air-lift concept artificial upwelling in the East China Sea

Pan, YiWen; Li, Yifan; Fan, Wei; Zhang, DaHai; Qiang, Yongfa; Jiang, ZongPei; Chen, Ying (2019): A sea trial of air-lift concept artificial upwelling in the East China Sea. In Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology. DOI: 10.1175/JTECH-D-18-0238.1.

"Artificial upwelling (AU), as one of the geoengineering tools, has received worldwide attention because of its potential ability to actualize ocean fertilization in a sustainable way. The severe challenges of AU are the design and fabrication of a technologically robust device with structural longevity which can maintain the function in a variable and complex hydrodynamics of the upper ocean. In this work, a sea-trial of an air-lift concept AU system driven by self-powered energy was carried out in the East China Sea (ECS) (30°8′14″N, 122°44′59″E) to assess the logistics of at-sea deployment and the durability of the equipment under extremely complex hydrodynamic condition from Sep 3rd to 7th, 2014."

Think Progress: Can Kelp Save The Pacific Ocean?

On artificial upwelling and other maritime sequestration. "When it comes to ocean acidification, the Pacific Northwest is set to be ground zero for some of the most dire impacts — so it makes sense that scientists in Washington state would be on the forefront of research aimed at finding solutions."

Pan, YiWen; et al. (2015): Research progress in artificial upwelling and its potential environmental effects

Pan, YiWen; Fan, Wei; Zhang, DaHai; Chen, JiaWang; Huang, HaoCai; Liu, ShuXia et al. (2015): Research progress in artificial upwelling and its potential environmental effects. In Sci. China Earth Sci. DOI 10.1007/s11430-015-5195-2.

"We reviewed the current knowledge on the development of an artificial upwelling system and its potential environmental effects. Special attention was given to the research progress on the air-lift concept artificial upwelling by Zhejiang University. The research on artificial upwelling over the past few decades has generated a range of devices that have been successfully applied in the field for months."

Phys.org: Scientists develop feedback technique to manage uncertainties in solar geoengineering

Media response to Kravitz, Ben; et al. (2014). "Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Caltech and Lancaster University took advantage of this "what-if" proving ground by inserting a unique feedback loop into a climate model to react to theoretical climate engineering techniques."
