Researchers have suggested oceans absorb more carbon from the atmosphere than previous scientific models had estimated

According to Phys. Org, The new study from the University of Exeter found that previous climate models only took into consideration the surface temperature of the ocean when calculating how much is absorbed by Earth’s water

It calculated CO2 fluxes into the oceans between 1992-2018 and found up to twice as much net flux in certain times and locations, compared to uncorrected models

The difference in ocean uptake calculated by researchers amounts to about “10% of global fossil fuel emissions
