Quantifying carbon-capture potential while building a stronger green economy.
The project aims to advance science and inform policy by measuring the potential of wetlands to store carbon in agricultural landscapes. This will be achieved by quantifying greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration in freshwater mineral soil wetlands across Canada using a range of techniques. Data collected will assist in developing authoritative estimates of wetland coverage, measuring wetlands’ ability to store carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
