Brown Bag Lunch n°4 on Blue Carbon

On Friday 14 February 2020, EMB will host its 4th Brown Bag Lunch to discuss Blue Carbon. Blue Carbon refers to organic carbon that is captured and stored by the oceans and coastal ecosystems.  In particular, the vegetated coastal ecosystems of seagrass meadows, tidal marshes, and mangrove forests sequester and store more carbon per unit area than terrestrial forests and are now being recognised for their role in mitigating climate change. Prof. Hilary Kennedy from the University of Bangor (UK) is one of the leading experts in Europe on this topic and she will provide some insight on the latest developments in this field.
