The Effects Of Icebergs On The Carbon Cycle
This video showcases the first comprehensive study on the biological effects of Antarctic icebergs. Surprisingly, they help fertilize the Southern Ocean and encourage the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere.

These floating deposits of freshwater wind up stimulating the growth of algae. This algal growth consumes atmospheric carbon dioxide and, through various marine food chains, transfers carbon into the deep sea.
