Robot probes the Red Sea’s carbon storage system

Warming waters and oxygen depletion in the Red Sea could slow the flow of organic carbon from the surface into the deep ocean where it can be stored, out of reach of the atmosphere. A KAUST team has used an underwater robot to investigate the little-studied mesopelagic, or “twilight,” zone, at depths of between 100 and 1000 meters.
