Oceans Waning As Effective Carbon Sink
"The more carbon dioxide the ocean absorbs, the more acidic it becomes and the less carbon dioxide it can absorb," said lead author Samar Khatiwala, a research scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University and a professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. "Because of this chemical effect, over time, the ocean is expected to become a less efficient sink of manmade carbon. The surprise is that we may already be seeing evidence for this, perhaps compounded by the oceans' slow circulation in the face of accelerating emissions."
