Summary "Blue carbon has emerged as a term that represents the distinctive carbon stocks and fluxes into or out of coastal wetlands, such as marshes, mangroves, and seagrasses. This blue carbon concept has rapidly developed in science lierature and is highly relevant politically, as nations and markets are developing blue carbon monitoring and management tools and policies. This book is a compendium of the science, the state of maps and mapping protocols, and the state of policy incentives (including economic valuation of blue carbon), with additional sections on operationalizing blue carbon projects and case studies with global relevance." -- From the rear cover.
