[1] We present ocean chemistry calculations based on ocean general circulation model simulations of atmospheric CO2 emission, stabilization of atmospheric CO2 content, and stabilization of atmospheric CO2 achieved in total or in part by injection of CO2 to the deep ocean interior. Our goal is to provide first-order results from various CO2 pathways,(More)
Direct injection of CO2 into the ocean is a potentially effective carbon sequestration strategy. Therefore, we want to understand the effectiveness of oceanic injection and develop the appropriate analytic framework to allow us to compare the effectiveness of this strategy with other carbon management options. Here, after a brief review of direct oceanic(More)
[1] We simulate direct injection of CO2 and uptake of CFC-11 in a global, threedimensional ocean general circulation model using two model resolutions: a coarse resolution of 4 in longitude by 2 in latitude and a finer resolution of 1 in both longitude and latitude. We assess the impact of resolution on the relative effectiveness of ocean carbon(More)
In the present work, the two-equation k-L model [G. Dimonte and R. Tipton, Phys. Fluids 18, 085101 (2006)] is extended by the addition of a third equation for the mass-flux velocity. A set of model constants is derived to satisfy an ansatz of self-similarity in the low Atwood number limit. The model is then applied to the simulation of canonical(More)
