From page 467...
... have synthesized data from studies of macroalgae transport and occurrence in the deep ocean to develop a rough estimate for macroalgae's carbon removal potential. They identified potential opportunities for carbon storage through burial within the algal beds, burial in the continental shelf, export to below the mixed ocean layer, and export to the deep sea.
From page 468...
... Methods for seaweed aquaculture may increase carbon removal exponentially by floating seaweed beds near the surface (Duarte et al., 2017)
