With climate, fertilizing oceans could be zero-sum game
New York NY (SPX) Jan 29, 2016
Scientists plumbing the depths of the central equatorial Pacific Ocean have found ancient sediments suggesting that one proposed way to mitigate climate warming - fertilizing the oceans with iron to produce more carbon-eating algae - may not necessarily work as envisioned. Plants need trace amounts of iron to perform photosynthesis, but certain parts of the oceans lack it, and thus algae are scarce. Recent shipboard experiments have shown that when researchers dump iron particles into such areas, ... read more
