Scientists, policymakers and industry leaders gather to discuss ocean iron fertilization
Date:9/25/2007

results have varied, but in general, iron fertilizers have been shown to promote plant growth in surface waters. However, many researchers remain skeptical about whether the process removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for the long term or just for a fleeting time. Ecological impacts from long-term, large-scale fertilization are also a concern.

The purpose of the Woods Hole conference is to bring researchers, policymakers, industrial interests, regulators, and environmentalists together to share their scientific observations and discuss the range of issues involved in altering the chemistry of the ocean. It is not intended as forum or referendum for specific projects and ventures.

In 20 hours of formal presentations and panel discussions over two days, participants will discuss:

  • Efficacy: Can iron fertilization work?
  • Research: What do we already know, and what could future studies, models, and experiments tell us?
  • Consequence: What will be the intended and unintended impacts?
  • Policy: What are the economic, social, and regulatory considerations?

The symposiumExploring Ocean Iron Fertilization: The Scientific, Economic, Legal, and Political Basis-- is being hosted by Buesseler, Scott Doney, a senior scientist in the WHOI Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry Department, and Hauke Kite-Powell, a research specialist in the WHOI Marine Policy Center.
