Wil Burns and Anna Madlener
Today's episode features three representatives of the SEAO2-CDR project, a European effort to determine strategies for the evaluation and assessment of ocean based carbon dioxide removal. The project's aims range from a strongly interdisciplinary background and focus not only on scientific, but also economic, legal, political, social and ethical aspects.
We are joined by
- the project’s Scientific and Technical Lead, Dr. Christopher Pearce from the National Oceanography Center in the UK.
- Dr Christine Merk of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, who co-leads WP4 Understanding public and stakeholder perceptions.
- Dr Patricia Grasse, University of Leipzig and GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research, who leads WP7 Integrated assessment of ocean-based CDR deployment.
The project is funded through the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101081362.
