CNN: This startup grows kelp then sinks it to pull carbon from the air

"One Maine-based startup, Running Tide Technologies, is experimenting with farming kelp, a type of seaweed, in an effort to pull carbon from the air and store it deep beneath the ocean floor, potentially giving the world another nature-based tool to curb climate change."

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."

Yuan, Peng; Liu, Dong (2021): Proposing a potential strategy concerning Mineral-enhanced Biological Pump (MeBP) for improving Ocean Iron Fertilization (OIF)

Yuan, Peng; Liu, Dong (2021): Proposing a potential strategy concerning Mineral-enhanced Biological Pump (MeBP) for improving Ocean Iron Fertilization (OIF). In Applied Clay Science 207, p. 106096. DOI: 10.1016/j.clay.2021.106096.

"To address the low efficiency of the vertical C export of OIF, a potential strategy for enhancing oceanic biological pump using clay minerals, so-called mineral-enhanced biological pump (MeBP), is proposed herein."
