Mangrove forests, salt marshes, seagrass beds, and the like are carbon storage treasure troves.
Still-water ecosystems are key to combating explosive algae growth.
Aircraft measurements confirm that methane emissions from northern European wetlands exhibit a uniform regional carbon isotopic signature, despite considerable ground-level heterogeneity.
Coastal wetland loss after an oil spill can be more extensive than after a hurricane.
Atmospheric methane levels are rising, and isotopic ratios within the greenhouse gas suggest that the tropics may be to blame.
As northern Minnesota's climate got wetter, precipitation drove mobile forms of young carbon deeper into peatlands, doubling the size of methane-producing strata.
PeatDataHub launch meeting; Leeds, United Kingdom, 23–24 May 2016
New research sheds light on the streams that carry carbon away from peatlands with the hope that the data will better inform climate models.
Methane emissions can drastically lower, or even reverse, the benefits of carbon sequestration in restored wetlands, according to new measurements from the Sacramento–San Joaquin Delta.
Scientists examine the role of variables like tides and suspended sediment concentration to improve methods of evaluating coastal wetlands and how they may respond to future sea level rise.
