Study reveals potential stability of ocean processes despite climate change
Description: In a recent study a research team integrated new, dynamic ways of representing marine ecosystem processes in ocean models. In applying them, they found that a more realistic representation of the marine ecosystem helped the ocean to take up and store carbon at similar rates regardless of global changes in physical properties, like temperature, salinity and circulation. The amount of carbon stored in the ocean was half as sensitive to large physical changes as before, when using simplistic equations. [Source:]
