B019:
Coastal wetland carbon: recent advances in measurements, modeling, and syntheses





Session ID#: 25123

Session Description:
Coastal marshes, mangroves, and seagrass sequester significant amounts of “blue carbon” in soils, sediments, and biomass. Complex interactions of climate, land use, sea level, species composition, and human management regulate the strength of the carbon sinks and the greenhouse gas balance. Our ability to measure and model the vertical (atmospheric) and lateral (hydrologic) exchanges of blue carbon at the land-ocean interface is limited. Their ecosystem services and the associated values of conservation and restoration in mitigating climate change have only recently been recognized by policymakers, coastal managers, and society at large. We aim to bring together biogeochemists, wetland ecologists, geomorphologists, earth system modelers, ecological engineers, and social scientists to discuss coastal blue carbon pools and fluxes, and their roles in global carbon cycling and climate change mitigation. We also aim to report recent advances in measurement methods, modeling, and synthesis results that can support carbon accounting in coastal wetland ecosystems.
