Tuesday, April 13, 2021. 12:00 PM. Webinar: Coastal Blue Carbon- What is it and how is NOAA
engaged? The NOAA Coastal Blue Carbon Team. Sponsored by NOAA Central Library. More
Abstract: Salt marshes, mangroves, and seagrass beds are incredibly efficient at capturing and
storing large quantities of carbon -- which is referred to as coastal blue carbon. The National
Ocean Service (NOS), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and Oceanic and
Atmospheric Research (OAR) work together to identify synergies and opportunities for
collaboration, and to leverage knowledge and resources on coastal blue carbon. This webinar
will feature the cross line office Coastal Blue Carbon clarifying what coastal blue carbon is,
describing NOAA's unique role in science, measurement, national and international policy, and
management associated with carbon storage and sequestration in coastal blue carbon habitats.
