This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the March 17, 2020 panel webinar on Blue Carbon.
This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for climate resilience, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among climate adaptation and resilience practitioners and researchers.
This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that examined the relationship between salt marshes, climate change, and nitrogen pollution and developed tools to leverage the “blue carbon” stored in wetlands to achieve broader management goals.
