MEDIA RELEASE: Carbon storage in costal ecosystems receives new funding

Environment Institute researchers receive new funding to investigate the potential for more carbon storage in our coastal ecosystems. Leading the way in blue carbon opportunities, our researchers have recently won funding through the new Blue Carbon Futures Grants from the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board. Blue carbon is carbon stored in […]

Healthy coastal habitats essential for combating climate change

Blue carbon ecosystems such as seagrasses, mangroves and tidal saltmarshes have exceptional capacity to sequester carbon dioxide. Compared to many terrestrial forests, these coastal vegetation communities can accumulate carbon at faster rates and store it for longer periods, making them an important tool to combat climate change. The Goyder Institute for Water Research’s Coastal Carbon […]

Blue coastal carbon is set to be the new ‘boom’ for coastal communities

A little known secret about Australian seagrass, mangroves and salt marshes is the ability to capture and store more carbon than the plants on dry land. South Australia is set up to protect and expand these ecosystems, whilst making money in the process for coastal communities. Plants growing in these watery places capture and store more […]
