Adding Blue Carbon Value to Coastal Restoration

May 2016
National Wetlands Newsletter;May/Jun2016, Vol. 38 Issue 3, p21
The understanding of greenhouse gases and the benefits of blue carbon continue to increase as the impacts of climate change become more apparent. The authors provide examples of how the value of blue carbon is being incorporated into coastal restoration projects in diverse regions and thoughts on expanding the use of blue carbon.

    A definition of the term "greenhouse effect" is presented. The greenhouse effect occurs when the light passes through a clear roof but the heat created is trapped within, resulting an increase temperature inside the greenhouse. It is the continuing production of high levels of carbon dioxide...
