Phys.org: $500 billion question: What's the value of studying the ocean's biological carbon pump?

"Due to limited research, scientists aren't sure exactly how much carbon is captured and stored—or sequestered—by the ocean each year or how increasing CO2 emissions will affect this process in the future."

Digdaya, Ibadillah A.; et al. (2020): A direct coupled electrochemical system for capture and conversion of CO2 from oceanwater

Digdaya, Ibadillah A.; Sullivan, Ian; Lin, Meng; Han, Lihao; Cheng, Wen-Hui; Atwater, Harry A.; Xiang, Chengxiang (2020): A direct coupled electrochemical system for capture and conversion of CO2 from oceanwater. In Nat Comms 11 (1), p. 4412. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-020-18232-y.

"Capture and conversion of CO2 from oceanwater can lead to net-negative emissions and can provide carbon source for synthetic fuels and chemical feedstocks at the gigaton per year scale. Here, we report a direct coupled, proof-of-concept electrochemical system that uses a bipolar membrane electrodialysis (BPMED) cell and a vapor-fed CO2 reduction (CO2R) cell to capture and convert CO2 from oceanwater."
