Blue Carbon in Practice webinar series 
 
Bringing Coastal Wetlands into the US National Inventory of GHG Emissions
 
WHEN: Thursday, June 1, 2017, 2pm-3pmEDT
 
Coastal wetlands - tidal marsh, seagrass and mangrove habitats - provide many important ecosystem services, including carbon capture and storage, referred to as blue carbon. When these habitats are drained or degraded, they can become a source of emissions as stored carbon is released back into the atmosphere. Every year the US updates its National Inventory of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions and Sinks to meet international committments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), yet activities in coastal wetlands had yet to be included.  
This year, the US is among the first nations to include GHG impacts of wetland activities in the national inventory. Recognizing the emissions and removals of GHGs in coastal wetlands through national inventories can empower nations to recongize the benefit of improved wetland management. 
This webinar will present the approach to including wetlands in the inventory, as well as key findings of the emissions and sequestartion potential of coastal wetland habitats and explore how this information can play a role in the policy and sale online viagra ie management of wetlands. 

 

Presenters: Dr. Steve Crooks, Silvestrum Climate Associates

Dr. Steve Crooks is a wetland scientist and geomorphologist with over 20 years of experience in the science and practice of wetland restoration. He has served in many roles bringing academia and private sector to deliver scientifically credible and practicable best-practice solutions for coastal management. He was the lead author of the IPCC 2013 Wetland Supplement, is a NASA Carbon Monitoring System Principal Investigator, and is co-founder of the International Blue Carbon Initiative. Dr. Crooks is also the lead investogator for incorporating blue carbon ecosystems into the National Inventory. 

This free webinar is hosted by Restore America’s Estuaries and the Coastal Carbon Research Coordination Network. Inventory work is supported by NOAA's Climate Program Office in collaboration with the US EPA.

Blue carbon workshop information:
Speakers include international wetland and carbon market experts, and local speakers invited to present on current efforts in the region. 
Blue Carbon refers to the carbon and  other greenhouse gases captured, stored, and emitted by tidal wetlands, salt marshes, sea grasses, mangroves, and other coastal ecosystems.         
Through these workshops, participants will learn:
  • The basic concepts of blue carbon and http://cmelak.cz/generic-cialis-us-pharmacy importance to conservation and restoration efforts
  • Applications of blue carbon as a management tool
  • Opportunities for coastal wetlands to earn carbon finance and 
  • How to assess opportunities in your region to implement projects.
Who should attend? - Coastal managers, academics, state/federal/local government, non-profits, consultants, restoration practitioners, etc.
