Anthropocene: While we debate geoengineering the ocean, it seems we’re already doing it

"Researchers in the United States analyzed iron in air samples collected on a research cruise in the North Atlantic Ocean. They used stable isotopes—forms of the same chemical element with different atomic weights—to discern the signature of different sources of iron."

The Times: Fertilising ocean with iron can combat climate change

"The oceans, when it comes to climate change, are normally viewed as the enemy. The more sea levels rise the more coastal cities, and eventually entire countries, are threatened with being submerged."

Cosmos: Adding iron to oceans could increase carbon storage

"David Emerson from the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in the US likes to think so. Writing in the journal Frontiers, he suggests it as a novel but potentially effective way to “fertilise” microscopic ocean plants and ultimately lower atmospheric carbon levels."

Beckman, R.; et al. (2018): High seas governance. Gaps and challenges

Beckman, R.; McCreath, M.; Roach, A. (Hg.) (2018): High seas governance. Gaps and challenges. Leiden: Brill Nijhoff (Publications on ocean development, 86). DOI: https://doi.org/10.1163/9789004373303_004

"This chapter examines the legal framework for marine geoengineering, analysing the extent to which the modern law of the sea has responded to the gaps and challenges in the current regulatory framework. It will focus on adapting existing environmental and other principles within the framework of unclos to geoengineering, before examining the recent initiative under the 1996 London Protocol to develop a designated regime to regulate ocean fertilisation."

SingularityHub: Y Combinator’s Search For a Climate Change Unicorn

"An incubator that became famous for spawning internet-based unicorns like AirBnB, DropBox, and Stripe is not the most obvious vehicle for supporting next-generation geoengineering approaches. But with sluggish action on climate change, they’ve decided to bring Silicon Valley’s disruptive potential to bear on carbon sequestration technology."
