An international team of scientists, including University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Professor of Oceanography Christopher Sabine at the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST), has shown that the ocean is absorbing carbon dioxide (C02), generated during the combustion of fossil fuels, from the atmosphere at an increasing rate from the 1990s to the early 2000s.
As reported in the latest issue of Science, the researchers found that the ocean has taken up as much as 34 gigatonnes (billions of metric tonnes) of human produced carbon between 1994 and 2007. This figure corresponds to 31 percent of all human-produced C02 emitted during that time.”
