Abstract

and both the short-lived and long-lived forms of organic carbon are needed to advance the fundamental science, as are better measures of above-ground biomass, and the amount of carbon in soil. "We need to know more about the fundamental mechanisms for controlling carbon sequestration," he said, calling the need for the digital environmental atlas Melillo described as "critical." The workshop ]articipants identified myriad monitoring technologies that need to be developed before either of the ocean sequestration options— direct injection and enhancement—could be attempted. For example, researchers need ways to measure the effect of differing pH and CO, concentrations on marine organisms, and the possible ramifications of altering the biogeochemical cycles of cobalt, zinc and selenium according to Howard Herzoe principal search engineer in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Enersv Laboratory
