Blue Carbon - First Level Exploration of Blue Carbon in the Arabian Peninsula

Blue Carbon - First Level Exploration of Blue Carbon in the Arabian Peninsula

Date: 2011
Creator: Lutz, S.J.
Description: Healthy natural coastal ecosystems, such as mangrove forests, saltwater marshlands and seagrass meadows provide a vast array of important co-benefits to coastal communities around the world, including throughout the Arabian Peninsula. These benefits include ecosystem services such as a rich cultural heritage; the protection of shorelines from storms; erosion or sea-level rise; food from fisheries; maintenance of water quality; and landscape beauty for recreation and ecotourism. In a Blue Carbon context these ecosystems also store and sequester potentially vast amounts of carbon in sediments and biomass.
