Sutton-Grier a co-author of new Marine Policy manuscript

ESSIC Associate Research Scientist Ariana Sutton-Grier is a co-author of a new manuscript published online in Marine Policy. The manuscript models how to include the storm protection benefits (SPB) of coastal habitats into the Habitat Equivalency Analysis (HEA), as part of the Natural Resources Damage Assessment (NRDA) process.  The work will ideally translate into more cross-ecosystem service flows, given the benefits ecosystems provide.  The study titled “Catching a wave? A case study on incorporating storm protection benefits into Habitat Equivalency Analysis” will be contained in Volume 83 of Marine Policy, scheduled for print release in September 2017.
