I've read about the biosphere project, especially about the drop in oxygen and rise of CO2. This was due to a smaller atmospheric volume than the outside, and this has created fluctuations. Efficiency of photosynthesis depends both on chlorophyll efficiency and CO2 concentration. To boost photosynthesis, they could have used a CO2 pump, to enrich air in some areas with CO2 and hasten this process. This will sequester CO2 more quickly. I did not find anything saying engineers have tried this one. Did they?
Re: Biosphere Project engineers got this one wrong?
