Blue carbon in restored and reference salt marshes in Galveston Bay, Texas

Published: 2017

The carbon sequestration role of coastal habitats is likely to be of  paramount importance in the maintenance of global atmospheric carbon levels, but the burgeoning field  of blue carbon still lacks quantitative estimates of carbon storage in many marine habitats. Therefore, the goals of this project were to (1) quantify blue carbon stocks in restored coastal salt marshes in  Galveston Bay, Texas, and (2) determine how long it takes for restored marsh blue carbon stocks to approach those in reference wetlands.
