Project Duration: 2014 - 2018
Solicitation:NASA: Carbon Monitoring System (2014)
Abstract: Coastal Blue Carbon ecosystems such as mangroves, salt marshes and seagrass beds have the highest total carbon densities of all ecosystems. Although they only represent 3% of the total forest area, carbon emissions from mangrove destruction at current rates could be equivalent to 10% of carbon emissions from deforestation. The high carbon sequestra ... [more]
