This paper examines how the worldwide problems of global warming are not new to the average American citizen and how attempting to control them through managed forestry of the ocean would be a new and interesting topic of discussion. It looks at how this type of scientific exploration is the topic of the article, "The Ocean's Invisible Forest," by Paul G. Falkowski in the August, 2002, issue of "Scientific American".

From the Paper:

"Phytoplankton, as well as all land dwelling plants, use the energy in sunlight to convert CO2 into organic matter. This process releases oxygen into the atmosphere which makes possible all animal life on Earth. This is known as primary production. Until recently it was unknown just how great the productivity of phytoplankton actually was. In 1997 NASA launched the Sea Wide Field Sensor (SeaWiFS). This was the first satellite that was capable of monitoring phytoplankton populations on a global level every week. By 1998 it was realized that phytoplankton are responsible for incorporating 45 to 50 billion metric tons of inorganic carbon into their cells."
