Ocean iron fertilization is the theory of seeding the ocean with microparticles of iron to stimulate a phytoplankton bloom, alleviating some carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as these absorb the CO2 and transform it to oxygen through photosynthesis, what all plants do for food.
Iron is hard for phytoplankton to come by in the ocean environment. Some have proposed that we seed the ocean with iron to increase the phytoplankton numbers (causing a bloom). The theory is that this will increase the productivity of the ocean and help capture CO2.
