How do we measure greenhouse gases in the ocean?

That was one of the main questions raised at a workshop, recently arranged by our research school in Arctic Marine Geology and Geophysics. Oceans are covering over 70 percent of our home planet´s surface. It is therefore important to understand how greenhouse gases affected ocean life in the past, and how they may affect it in the future.
