Sea research for climate change

Oceanographers are to measure how seas absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in order to understand and predict climate change.

Researchers say currently only about half of man-made CO2 emissions stay in the atmosphere, with the remaining 50% absorbed by oceans and land.

The study will look at how plankton, which absorbs CO2, is affected by wind driven nutrients in shallower seas.
