Abstract

Different from the solution/physical pump, biological pump and continental shelf pump of carbon cycle in oceans, a new pump named surface microlayer (SML) pump is developed based on data obtained from marine investigations and lab study. The SML pump has: (1) left-right dissymmetry of pH-depth curve; (2) the non-linearity of concentration-depth curve; and (3) difference of affecting confine of the SML pump. The issue of source or sink of atmospheric CO2 in the Yellow Sea and South China Sea is discussed.
