We need to investigate how the ocean’s immense potential for atmospheric carbon dioxide removal can be harnessed to reduce the impacts of climate change.
New research has shed light on the role sea ice plays in managing atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.
Two UNSW academics have been honoured by Australian Academy of Science for their research on the impact of ocean currents on the global climate and how forests evolve and vary across Australia.
Stronger westerly winds in the Southern Ocean could be the cause of a sudden rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide in a period of less than 100 years about 16,000 years ago.
The only sure way to stop the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is to curb carbon dioxide emissions, write Steve Sherwood and Laurie Menviel.
