In that case, I'll move this to the Geography and Earth Sciences forum, where you should be able to find others who can help you.

I believe a carbon sink (if I remember correctly) is an area that absorbs more CO2 than it lets out, for example a rainforest.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_sink This might help, it has a section on oceans which your question relates to.
