London: Australian scientists have found that whale faeces could help combat global warming by allowing the Southern Ocean to absorb more carbon dioxide.

This document provides an overview of the interactions between the ocean and climate and describes the impacts of climate change on the marine ecosystems and the goods and services
they provide human society. Further, it outlines a set

Ocean fertilization has been highly publicized as a cost effective strategy for mitigating climate change. However, these costs do not effectively account for the observed shortcomings in sequestration efficiency, nor the total economic value of ecosystem function which might be lost due to ocean fertilization, and have been significantly underestimated.

Shipboard iron- and macronutrient-addition experiment was conducted in the Central Indian Ocean, to investigate the variations of carbon in different forms and its records for plankton activities. Experiments were conducted in four 500-L acrylic barrels with the surface seawater near 24

The breadth and complexity of the global ocean, covering more than 70 percent of Earth's surface, have challenged our ability to explore, comprehend, predict and even control its processes and behavior. It is now generally accepted that the world oceans are by far the largest sink of anthropogenic CO2 one the dominant cause of global warming on our planet.

Bangladesh Academy of Science and the academies of 69 other countries around the world in a joint statement yesterday warned that ocean acidification, one of the world's most important climate change challenges, may be left off the agenda at the United Nations Copenhagen conference.

Algae grown to trap CO2 become feed for organisms THE Indo-German experiment to induce algal bloom in the South Atlantic Ocean has been ruined by tiny marine organisms called zooplanktons. They ate half the algae grown by spraying a swathe of the ocean surface with iron dust. The ocean fertilization experiment called Lohafex was carried out by scientists from the Alfred Wegener

Emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases can be reduced significantly using existing technologies, but stabilizing concentrations will require a technological revolution because it will require fundamental change, achieved within a relatively short period of time.
