|Title:||Pacific Northwest Carbon Stocks and Blue Carbon Database Project - NERRS/NSC(NERRS Science Collaborative)|
Tidal wetlands are recognized for their important role in carbon sequestration, as well as for their potential to become significant sources of greenhouse gas emissions when converted to other land uses. The substantial quantities of carbon captured and stored by tidal wetlands—termed “blue carbon”—is an ecosystem service of great interest to those developing regional, national, and global climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, including carbon markets. While carbon stocks data have been collected in several parts of the world to quantify the carbon sequestration potential of tidal wetlands, there is a scarcity of such information in the Pacific Northwest.
This project helps to fill this gap by conducting the first-ever comprehensive blue carbon assessment in Pacific Northwest tidal wetlands and generating a user-friendly database of regional blue carbon data. Input from end users is guiding the design, scope, outputs, and outcomes of the project. This project will contribute to national and international efforts to incorporate blue carbon science into coastal management and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
