Negative carbon emissions are considered to be a promising approach to the goal of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 2.0°C or perhaps even 1.5°C by the end of this century. The ocean has a large capacity to sequester carbon and has absorbed approximately 25% of the CO2 produced by fossil fuel combustion and cement production since the beginning of the industrial revolution. Increasing ocean carbon sinks by anthropogenic processes ...Read More

Microbial production of recalcitrant dissolved organic matter: long-term carbon storage in the global ocean
The biological pump is a process whereby CO2 in the upper ocean is fixed by primary producers and transported to the deep ocean as sinking biogenic particles or as dissolved organic...
The crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic is warning of a more profound crisis—climate change. Since the Industrial Revolution, anthropogenic activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation, have led to...
Microbial degradation of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in aquatic environments can cause oxygen depletion, water acidification, and CO2 emissions. These problems are caused by labile DOC (LDOC) and not refractory DOC (RDOC)...
