Using algae as a "biological carbon pump" has been touted as one of the more promising "geo-engineering" schemes for mitigating global warming. Plankton act as a natural sponge for carbon dioxide - drawing the greenhouse gas down out of the atmosphere and into the sea. When plankton die, they sink to the bottom of the ocean, locking away some of the carbon they have absorbed.
" This is a significant result - it suggests that ocean iron fertilisation might work for reducing atmospheric CO2 Prof Peter Burkill, SAHFOS "
Terraforming (literally, "Earth-shaping") of a planet, moon, or other body is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying its atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to those of Earth to make it habitable by humans.
