So, while Murray could write little on trace elements, he grasped how the least can exert the most influence. Spray completely with water before putting on lid. The natural forces involved stir the imagination on a very elemental level. Since the volume of all oceans is 1.35E21 kg (see table of units & measures ) and CO2 concentration is 9E-5 kg/kg (90ppm), it follows that the total amount of CO2 in all oceans is 12.2E16 kg = 121,000 Pg (Mt) and the partial carbon amount (12/42) = 34,700 Pg (600Pg in surface waters + 7000Pg in mid waters + 30,000Pg in deep ocean = 37,600Pg [1]).

Nuclear tests have almost doubled the quantity in the atmosphere in a peak (year 1964) that is gradually becoming normal again as the peak is absorbed by organisms and the ocean. It creates feelings of awe, peace, and joy (The Beach Boys: “Catch a wave, and you’re sitting on top of the world”). This is true of table salt, but Murray found that if sodium is blended with all of the other elements in the same ratios as in seawater, plants aren’t injured — instead, they thrive.

When a predator is looking at them from below, they blend into the lighter waters above. Of course this calculation is very approximate, and subject to many assumptions which are far from rigidly defined, but it does give some sort of basis for further examination and refinement.

The world over, all hues of blues and greens are alive in the ocean currents tossed by storms and soothed by the sun.
