How do oceans absorb CO2?
1) Differences in pressure between the air and the ocean cause carbon dioxide to be exchanged and 2) algae and phytoplankton absorb carbon dioxide.
The ocean can absorb carbon dioxide (
Carbon dioxide moves between the atmosphere and the ocean by molecular diffusion: a difference between
The solubility of carbon dioxide varies based on salinity and temperature of the water and there is a finite amount that the water can absorb. The colder the water, the more
The solubility of
