Ocean Fertilization - Definition, glossary, details
Ocean Fertilization refers to adding of nutrients to the surface
water of the oceans which would trigger the growth of marine plants. These
plants take in carbon dioxide to grow, thereby removing large amount of carbon
dioxide from the atmosphere.
This method is considered to be one of the latest technologies in
carbon dioxide sequestration. Ocean
fertilization is a geoengineering technique aims at enhancing the rate of ocean
intake of atmospheric CO2. Researchers are working out the merits of
ocean fertilization compared to other carbon dioxide storage methods.
