An introduction to Marine Biomass Regeneration (MBR) - How can we help in the climate restoration of the sea? Come and join us to learn about what we mean by Marine Biomass Regeneration.

Oceans are the largest heat and carbon sinks on our planet, covering 70% of the planet’s surface. Natural oceanic processes have absorbed over 90% of the excess heat and a third of anthropogenic carbon emissions since the industrial revolution. As a result, oceans are undergoing unprecedented changes, such as warming waters, acidification, ocean stratification, declining levels of oxygen, reduced productivity, and changes to the natural balance of marine biospheres including dramatic reductions in fish stocks and marine mammal populations. Regenerating the oceans by the addition of limited nutrient is a promising greenhouse gas removal technique mimicking natural processes. Marine biomass regeneration seeks to mimic the distribution of whale faeces by spreading limited nutrients from the research vessel. Come and join us to learn more!

There will be a Q&A session after the talk.
