Limestone, deposited in the sea floor, is formed from marine organisms’ shells. This marine life makes use of calcium carbonate to build their skeletons, and after their death, the skeletons fall to the seafloor.

Limestone is the largest carbon deposit on Earth, and warming ocean affects it. Limestone starts releasing stored carbon back into the atmosphere, which converts to CO2 and adds to greenhouse gases amounts.
