Food for thought: What are the likely side effects of fertilizing phytoplankton with iron?

...sides the sheer logistical issues of supplying the oceans with sufficient iron to result in a significant removal of CO2, there may be several undesired side effects. The effects on marine ecology were pointed out last year in the literature (Chisholm, S. W., et al., Science, 12 Oct. 2001, p. 309-310). Thes...

Increasing nitrogen in Earth's soils may signal global changes, say U. of Colorado researchers

...bon molecules in the world's vegetation, soils and oceans must be immense, he said. "If these sinks slow down or turn off in the near future, we could see much larger increases in atmospheric C02," said Townsend. "If cold tundra soils are sensitive to nitrogen, it raises concerns about what might be happen...

Scripps research gives tiny phytoplankton a large role in Earth's climate system

...global warming may be decreased by fertilizing the oceans with iron, which would lead to an increase in the ocean's biological pump. Through such an increase, the argument holds, phytoplankton would be able to draw carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and therefore reduce global warming. Frouin and Iacobell...

New CU-NASA research belies previous idea that Mars was once warm, wet planet

...dy belies the warm, wet, Mars theory of rivers and oceans embraced by many planetary scientists, since such impactors were so infrequent.
