Study: Cold Climates and Ocean Carbon Sequestration
Description: We know a lot about how carbon dioxide (CO2) levels can drive climate change, but how about the way that climate change can cause fluctuations in CO2 levels? New research from an international team of scientists reveals one of the mechanisms by which a colder climate was accompanied by depleted atmospheric CO2 during past ice ages. Deep-sea corals were used to reveal why atmospheric carbon was reduced during colder time periods. [Source: California Institute of Technology]
