Wetlands Becoming Carbon Scrubbing Hotspots?

Monday 18th March / presented by Jane Hebiton

Research from The University of Wollongong reveals coastlines that experienced consistent relative sea-level rise over the the past 6000 years are able to sequester more carbon compared with wetlands in areas that experience more stable sea levels over this same time period.

This research also shows that areas that have experienced rapid changes in sea levels of the last few decades have gone from low carbon wetlands to carbon sequestering hot spots.

While this new research does show wetlands as having this impressive response to rising sea levels, more support towards these coastal environments is essential to help preserve and cultivate these natural ecosystems in order to maximise and extend their impact.

University of Wollongong Associate Professor Kerrylee Rogers joined RTRFM to tell us more about the ramifications of this possible new outlook on scrubbing for carbon.
