UNC Marine Sciences’ is proud to host a seminar by Nathan McTigue. Presenter Affiliation: National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, NOAA in Beaufort, NC Title: Revisiting the blueprints for blue carbon: can salt marsh carbon sequestration mitigate climate change? Abstract: Ecosystems that naturally remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere have received increased attention as a “natural fix” to mitigate the causes of climate change. Coastal wetlands, including salt marshes, have a pronounced ability not only to remove atmospheric carbon dioxide but also…
