Nevertheless, at the present rate of anthropogenic CO2 emissions these gigantic reservoirs seem to be arriving at saturation point. To understand this phenomenon, a European research programme, CarboOcean, has been investigating the oceans of the world in search of indicators making it possible to assess the remaining CO2 absorption potential and the consequences of possible saturation;
