The ocean is the largest carbon sink in the world. It is difficult to determine the content of anthropogenic carbon (Cant) and the spatial and temporal distribution in the ocean. The methods of Cant determination, inventories estimation of Cant, temporal variations of Cant were summarized in this review. The ocean can still uptake and store Cant from the atmosphere. However there are still many uncertainties for the oceanic Cant uptake and storage studies. The evidences show that it is not true for Cant estimations based on the steady state assumption. Thus, it is necessary to define and study the Cant based on non-steady state. Meanwhile, it is necessary to collect more observation data and use more approaches such as observations and model simulations to study the Cant uptake and storage in different time scales.
