  • Blue carbon stored in vegetated coastal systems could be underestimated

    Vegetated coastal ecosystems, such as mangroves, marshes and seagrasses, are an important carbon sink and their destruction increases greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A new study estimates that 0.15-1.02 Pg (petagrams) of CO2 are being released annually from degradation of these valuable ecosystems, resulting in economic losses of US$6-42 billion (€4.68 to 32.81 billion) per year. It ...

  • Finding vegetables in unexpected places

    Urban agriculture, or urban farming, is becoming more common not only in Detroit-where some say the trend began-but around the country. Urban farms range from small-scale vegetable gardens in abandoned lots to larger operations with hoop houses and honeybees.

  • Amazon rainforest is storing less and less carbon

    A team of 90 researchers has discovered that the uptake of carbon in the Amazon rainforest is decreasing over the long term. This is due to a recent decline in the growth rate of trees, while tree mortality has increased. As a result, carbon is stored in the rainforest for a shorter period. A possible cause of the shorter lifespan of trees could be greater variation in climate. This was one of ...

  • Northern peat soils: potential as a carbon sink

    Upland peat soils provide a substantial carbon sink if managed properly, according to new research. A study of a peatland area in the UK indicated that it could potentially store approximately 160,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. It has been estimated that 20 to 30 per cent of carbon stored in the soil is held in northern peatlands. There are two main drivers that convert this from a net sink to a net ...

  • Peat bog in storage

    Oil company Total has agreed to dig up an entire moorland peatbog on Shetland and store it for 30 years, with a view to restoring it at the end of operations for its Sullom Voe oil terminal. It's estimated that more than 260,000 cubic metres of peat – enough to fill 100 Olympic swimming pools – will have to be cut out and moved away to be piled up in 'peat terraces' and covered with a layer of ...
