A Research Strategy for Ocean Carbon Dioxide Removal and Sequestration

A Research Strategy for Ocean Carbon Dioxide Removal and Sequestration


The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is undertaking a study to explore ocean-based approaches to carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and sequestration and provide a path forward for research and development of promising CDR approaches. The carbon dioxide removal approaches to be examined include recovery of ocean and coastal ecosystems (including as one aspect the restocking of whale populations; iron, nitrogen or phosphorus fertilization; artificial upwelling (and downwelling); seawater CO2 stripping; seaweed permaculture; ocean alkalinity enhancement.
 
The study will be carried out by a committee of approximately 12 volunteer experts in the fields of:
  • physical, biological and chemical oceanography;
  • chemical engineering;
  • carbon capture; and
  • economics.
We invite you to submit nominations for committee members and/or reviewers for this study by July 10, 2020.
