Estimation of Anthropogenic CO2 Inventories in the Ocean
Description: A significant impetus for recent ocean biogeochemical research has been to better understand the ocean's role as a sink for anthropogenic CO2. Today, the ocean carbon uptake rate estimates suggest that the ocean is not keeping pace with the CO2 emissions growth rate. Continued observations are necessary to monitor changes and understand mechanisms controlling ocean carbon uptake and storage in the future. [Source: Annual Review of Marine Science]
