Coastal Blue Carbon


Coastal Blue Carbon means marine coastal management practices to increase the biomass, and therefore the carbon that is sequestered by coastal marine ecosystems such as salt marshes, mangrove forests, and sea grass beds - both in the vegetation and in underlying sediments. The term “blue carbon” can also refer to non-coastal repositories including carbon dissolved throughout the oceans - an immense quantity far larger than is contained in the atmosphere - and also forms of carbon stored in deep ocean sediments including biomass and methane clathrate.
