Abstract:
Current models suggest that the North Atlantic is a region of high, and increasing, uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (Canth). However, recent studies of carbon transports and related budgets have suggested that, although the region north of 24.5°N is a net sink of CO2, its magnitude has not changed since the onset of the industrial era, implying no uptake of Canth. The accumulation of Canth within the region is instead thought to be due to CO2 uptake south of 24.5°N before advection into the North Atlantic basin in the upper limb of the meridional overturning circulation.
