Data from: Coastal protection and blue carbon mapping for six mid-Atlantic states

Public

  • Coastal habitats’ ability to store carbon and protect natural and human communities from hazards makes them valuable assets in state and community efforts to enhance coastal resilience and support climate mitigation. The Nicholas Institute collaborated with six eastern seaboard states (North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and New York) on a U.S. Climate Alliance-funded project to prioritize coastal habitats based on their contributions to coastal protection and blue carbon storage.

    The Nicholas Institute team completed spatial modeling that considers current coastal habitats and potential future changes to these habitats due to sea level rise. We assess habitats’ ability to store carbon long-term and protect vulnerable ecological and human communities into the future. ... [Read More]
