Bringing Wetlands to Market – Nitrogen and Coastal Blue Carbon

Dr. Jim Tang, Assistant Scientist, The Ecosystems Center, Marine Biological Laboratory
Dr. Kevin Kroeger, Associate, U.S. Geological Survey
Melanie Garate, University of Rhode Island

bwtm-presentation-tangJim Tang, Kevin Kroeger, and Melanie Garate presented on the Bringing Wetlands to Market project which is exploring greenhouse gas exchange in salt marshes and the nitrogen impacts on that exchange. They explained the team’s innovative approaches to measuring vertical and lateral fluxes of carbon and greenhouse gasses in different conditions (e.g. temporal, tidal). They also described research to determine if there are simple proxies (e.g. plants) for determining vertical greenhouse gas fluxes in salt marshes.
