Sutton-Grier authors blog on NOAA blue carbon work

ESSIC researcher Ariana Sutton-Grier recently summarized NOAA’s blue carbon efforts in a blog piece posted on the blueforests website.  The Blue Forests Project is a four year initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and co-financed by project partners, and managed by GRID-Arendal, a Norwegian foundation and center collaborating with UNEP.  The project seeks to provide the first global-scale assessment of the values associated with coastal carbon and ecosystem services, in order to achieve improved ecosystem management through recognition of these values.
