Carbon sequestration, or the drawdown of carbon already in the atmosphere, is one potential solution for climate change. Atmocean leverages the natural power of the ocean to green arid lands and freshwater to rural coastal areas. It starts offshore with wave energy converters that operate ocean pumps driven by waves that move pressurized sea-water to an onshore desalination plant where the sea water can be converted into fresh water. The fresh water is then delivered to drip irrigation pipe networks, creating new agricultural cropland in the rural coastal desert regions.
