Wind, eddies and currents work together to create 1,000 km-wide, carbon-sucking funnels that take Earth-warming carbon deep into the Southern Ocean to be safely locked away. The process itself could be threatened by climate change, according to the research team from Britain and Australia that made the discovery, published in Nature Geoscience.
