Underwater grasses generally absorb the most carbon. No other habitat absorbs so much carbon. In this context, Max Planck researchers conducted research on marine grasses. One square kilometer of sea grass has been found to store twice as much carbon as a forest the same size as Earth. Moreover, it was found to be able to absorb carbon 35 times faster.
As part of the study, scientists examined the bottom of this marine meadow and discovered an amazing object. Large amounts of sugar were found in the soil. Manuel Libek, who led the research, explained that this is 80 percent more than the sugar deposits previously found in marine habitats. The amount of sea sugar in this way around the world could be as high as 1.3 million tonnes, equivalent to the sugar in 32 billion cans of Coca-Cola, Libeke said.
But he said he agreed. Three-quarters of the sea grass has already been described as extinct.
Libek said their research has shown that declining marine grasslands are also destroying marine ecosystems that can absorb large amounts of carbon. It will emit 1.54 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, equivalent to the carbon dioxide emitted by 3.30 million cars a year. Libeke emphasized the importance of protecting the environment.
