The Kenai Lowlands in southern Alaska cover 9.400 square kilometers and include huge expanses of wetlands, predominantly peatlands and tidal saltmarshes at river mouths and coastlines. As part of a project to assess the potential for blue carbon projects in this region, the Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and its partners developed a research plan to fill key information gaps.
About this resource
This logic model describes the inputs, outputs, and outcomes to meet the project's blue carbon research objectives. This includes assessments of existing peatland extent and condition in the Kachemak Bay region, summaries of previous studies and data for peatlands, methodlogies for measuring peatland carbon, sampling strategies, and potential future partnerships.
