Asleep in the deep: Model helps assess ocean-injection strategy for combating greenhouse effect

...dioxide can rise toward the surface, turn into gas bubbles and vent to the atmosphere, defeating the purpose of the whole grand scheme. Even worse, if the liquid-to-gas conversion happens suddenly, the gas can bubble up in a plume and erupt---a potential hazard. Small-scale ocean experiments have been done...
