Copepod migrations are important for the ocean's uptake of CO2
Description: In a scientific article, researchers have shown that the ocean's tiny copepods actively transport carbon down to the deep water in the North Atlantic during their winter hibernation. The discovery means that our understanding of the planet's carbon cycle, and the ocean's ability to absorb carbon needs to be revised. Changes in the carbon cycle are the cause of climate change.
