- The oceanic sink for anthropogenic CO2Christopher L Sabine
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, 7600 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98115, USA
Science 305:367-71. 2004..The current fraction of total anthropogenic CO2 emissions stored in the ocean appears to be about one-third of the long-term potential...
- Estimation of anthropogenic CO2 inventories in the oceanChristopher L Sabine
Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory NOAA, Seattle, Washington 98115 6349, USA
Ann Rev Mar Sci 2:175-98. 2010..There are many uncertainties in the future ocean carbon storage. Continued observations are necessary to monitor changes and understand mechanisms controlling ocean carbon uptake and storage in the future...
- Impact of anthropogenic CO2 on the CaCO3 system in the oceansRichard A Feely
Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Seattle, WA 98115 6349, USA
Science 305:362-6. 2004..The total water column CaCO3 dissolution rate for the global oceans is approximately 0.5 +/- 0.2 petagrams of CaCO3-C per year, which is approximately 45 to 65% of the export production of CaCO3...
- Evidence for upwelling of corrosive "acidified" water onto the continental shelfRichard A Feely
Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 7600 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98115 6349, USA
Science 320:1490-2. 2008..Although seasonal upwelling of the undersaturated waters onto the shelf is a natural phenomenon in this region, the ocean uptake of anthropogenic CO2 has increased the areal extent of the affected area...
- Anthropogenic ocean acidification over the twenty-first century and its impact on calcifying organismsJames C Orr
Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l Environnement, UMR CEA CNRS, CEA Saclay, F 91191 Gif sur Yvette, France
Nature 437:681-6. 2005..Our findings indicate that conditions detrimental to high-latitude ecosystems could develop within decades, not centuries as suggested previously...
