Description

sea4soCiety aims at developing innovative and societally accepted approaches to improve the natural potential for carbon storage in coastal ecosystems. sea4soCiety is one of six research consortia within the research mission “Marine carbon sinks in decarbonization pathways” of the German Marine Research Alliance (DAM). The project will determine the blue carbon potential of coastal ecosystems along the Wadden Sea and Baltic Sea coasts (focusing on saltmarsh, seagrass, and seaweed) as well as in tropical Colombia and Indonesia (focusing on mangroves, saltmarsh, and seagrass). sea4soCiety is itself a consortium of ten research institutions across northern Germany, operating under the auspices of CDRmare.
