    The whole ocean is a carbon absorber; as a matter of fact, it is the largest carbon sink on Earth!

    The algae present in all parts of the ocean is a huge absorber of carbon.  Like all plants, algae uses carbon dioxide in photosynthesis to create energy for itself, and releases oxygen as a byproduct.  Although algae individually is small, the sheer size of algae taken together and spread across the ocean is enough to make it one of the most potent carbon reducing forces on earth.  Coral reefs are another beneficial carbon sink, as they trap and store carbon in the form of the limestone scale they produce that composes the bony exterior of the coral.
