  Southern Ocean taking up less CO2

Photo of article One of our planet’s most important absorbers of carbon dioxide is failing to take up as much of the greenhouse gas as had been expected, according to an article published by European researchers this week in the journal Science. A decline in the ability of Antarctica’s Southern Ocean to act as a carbon ‘sink’ could mean higher levels of atmospheric CO2 in future than previously predicted. Carbon sinks are important because they soak up excess CO2 from the atmosphere, helping temper the effects elevated greenhouse gas levels have on the environment. The four-year study was carried out by scientists from the University of East Anglia (UEA), British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry.
