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?
