Reviews and syntheses: Ocean iron fertilization experiments – past, present, and future looking to a future Korean Iron Fertilization Experiment in the Southern Ocean (KIFES) project

Abstract. Since the start of the industrial revolution, human activities have caused a rapid increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations, which have, in turn, had an impact on climate

Enhanced marine sulphur emissions offset global warming and impact rainfall

It is found that the cooling effect associated with enhanced DMS emissions beneficially offsets greenhouse gas induced warming across most of the world, however, the rainfall response may adversely affect water resources, potentially impacting human livelihoods.

Implications of large-scale iron fertilization of the oceans

A historical perspective of the scientific study of ocean iron fertilization (OIF) over the last 15 yr prefaces a short synthesis of the multi-faceted issues raised by the 11 contributions to this

Predicting and monitoring the effects of large-scale ocean iron fertilization on marine trace gas emissions

  • C. Law
  • Environmental Science
  • 2008
The response of nitrous oxide and dimethylsulphide in the mesoscale iron addition experiments (FeAXs) and model scenarios of large-scale OIF are examined, and the N2O–O2 relationship provides a monitoring option using oxygen as a proxy, with spatial coverage by Argo and glider-mounted oxygen optodes.

A review of climate geoengineering proposals

Climate geoengineering proposals seek to rectify the current radiative imbalance via either (1) reducing incoming solar radiation (solar radiation management) or (2) removing CO2 from the atmosphere

Polar Cooling Effect Due to Increase of Phytoplankton and Dimethyl-Sulfide Emission

The effects of increased dimethyl-sulfide (DMS) emissions due to increased marine phytoplankton activity are examined using an atmosphere-ocean coupled climate model. As the DMS emission flux from

Short-Lived Trace Gases in the Surface Ocean and the Atmosphere

The two-way exchange of trace gases between the ocean and the atmosphere is important for both the chemistry and physics of the atmosphere and the biogeochemistry of the oceans, including the global

Sensitivity of cloud condensation nuclei to regional changes in dimethyl-sulphide emissions

Abstract. The atmospheric oxidation of dimethyl-sulphide (DMS) derived from marine phytoplankton is a significant source of marine sulphate aerosol. DMS has been proposed to regulate climate via
