Sutton-Grier published in Coastal Management

ESSIC’s Ariana Sutton-Grier was published this month in Volume 44, Issue 2 of Coastal Management.  Her article entitled, “Leveraging Carbon Services of Coastal Ecosystems for Habitat Protection and Restoration” details the efforts of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)–and its partners–to develop new policy opportunities for coastal conservation utilizing “blue carbon.” Blue carbon refers to the carbon stored and sequestered in coastal ecosystems such as mangrove forests, seagrass meadows or intertidal saltmarshes.
