USGS Blue Carbon Projects

Together with partner organizations, the USGS is involved in data collection, analysis and synthesis to improve estimates of coastal wetland carbon fluxes. Some site specific research locations are listed below. Targeted efforts at these sites will help improve science and data availability on:

  1. ecosystem-specific emission factors and sequestration rates,
  2. effects of activities (e.g. land management actions), and
  3. effects of, and response to, sea level rise.
