  abstract = {{Observational and atmospheric inversion studies find that the strength
of the Southern Ocean carbon dioxide (CO$_{2}$) sink is not
increasing, despite rising atmospheric CO$_{2}$. However, this is
yet to be captured by contemporary coupled-climate-carbon-models used to
predict future climate. We show that by accounting for stratospheric
ozone depletion in a coupled-climate-carbon-model, the ventilation of
carbon rich deep water is enhanced through stronger winds, increasing
surface water CO$_{2}$ at a rate in good agreement with observed
trends. We find that Southern Ocean uptake is reduced by 2.47 PgC
(1987-2004) and is consistent with atmospheric inversion studies. The
enhanced ventilation also accelerates ocean acidification, despite
lesser Southern Ocean CO$_{2}$ uptake. Our results link two
important anthropogenic changes: stratospheric ozone depletion and
greenhouse gas increases; and suggest that studies of future climate
that neglect stratospheric ozone depletion likely overestimate regional
and global oceanic CO$_{2}$ uptake and underestimate the impact of
ocean acidification.
