Upcoming Events

Blue Carbon: Taking the Next Steps Gulf Regional Workshop
March 15, 2017 in New Orleans, LA
 
 

Blue Carbon in Practice webinar series 
 
Blue Carbon Ecosystems - what's included, what's not, and why
 
WHEN: Wednesday, February 8, 2017, 2pm-3pmEST
 
With increasing recognition of the role natural systems have in climate mitigation, where should management initiatives focus? While forest have historically had the spotlight of such efforts, coastal wetland ecosystems are now considered important and effective long-term carbon sinks. This attention to “blue carbon” habitats has sparked interest in including other marine systems, such as coral reefs, phytoplankton, kelp forests, and marine fauna.
In this webinar, authors of a recently published paperClarifying the role of coastal and medicines viagra more drug uses marine systems in climate mitigation – analyze the scientific evidence and potential management role of several coastal and marine ecosystems to determine which should be prioritized within current climate mitigation strategies and policies. Findings can assist decision-makers and conservation practitioners to understand where management actions can have additional carbon benefits.

Presenters: Dr. Jennifer Howard and Dr. Ariana Sutton-Grier

Dr. Jennifer Howard is the Marine Climate Change Director at Conservation International. Prior to accepting her current position, she was a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow where she served two years at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service. While at NOAA, Jennifer co-led and coordinated the development of the Ocean and sale online viagra ie Marine Resources in a Changing Climate Technical Input Report to the National Climate Assessment and coordinated the Interagency Working Group for Ocean Acidification.

Dr. Ariana Sutton-Grier is an ecosystem ecologist with expertise in wetland ecology and restoration, biodiversity, biogeochemistry, climate change, and ecosystem services. Dr. Sutton-Grier is a research faculty member at the University of Maryland in the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center and is also the Ecosystem Science Adviser for the National Ocean Service at NOAA.  She holds Honors Bachelor degrees from Oregon State University in Environmental Science and International Studies and a doctoral degree from Duke University in Ecology.

Blue carbon workshop information:
Speakers include international wetland and carbon market experts, and local speakers invited to present on current efforts in the region. 
Blue Carbon refers to the carbon and  other greenhouse gases captured, stored, and emitted by tidal wetlands, salt marshes, sea grasses, mangroves, and other coastal ecosystems.         
Through these workshops, participants will learn:
  • The basic concepts of blue carbon and importance to conservation and http://cmelak.cz/generic-cialis-us-pharmacy restoration efforts
  • Applications of blue carbon as a management tool
  • Opportunities for coastal wetlands to earn carbon finance and 
  • How to assess opportunities in your region to implement projects.
Who should attend? - Coastal managers, academics, state/federal/local government, non-profits, consultants, restoration practitioners, etc.
