NOAA Issues Part 1 Of Blue Carbon Series

-

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries has released the first of a two-part Conservation Science Series of reports on Blue Carbon in Marine Protected Areas.

The report describes how blue carbon ecosystems help mitigate climate change by sequestering and storing atmospheric carbon.

Blue carbon ecosystems mitigate climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and transporting it into sediments or deep waters, where it can remain indefinitely if undisturbed, according to NOAA. Accounting for these processes, and how they can help to achieve global carbon mitigation and emission reduction goals, is an emerging area of focus for marine protected area management.

Check out the report here.
