Coastal water absorbing more carbon dioxide

(University of Delaware) New research by a University of Delaware oceanographer and colleagues at other universities reveals that the water over the continental shelves is shouldering a larger than expected portion of atmospheric carbon dioxide. The findings may have important implications for scientists focused on understanding how much carbon dioxide can be released into the atmosphere while still keeping warming limited.
