Blue Carbon
Blue carbon refers to the carbon captured and stored in oceans and coastal ecosystems. It can be found in a number of places, including tidal wetlands, mangroves, tidal marshes and seagrass meadows. Because blue carbon ecosystems are such effective carbon sinks, they can play a major role in meeting national and global targets on climate change, but when drained, they release their enormous carbon stores into the atmosphere.
