"Tracking Carbon in Coastal Wetlands: Sources and Sinks from the Muck and the Mire"

Tuesday, November 18
Speaker: Dr. Lisa Schile


Coastal wetlands both store and release significant amounts of carbon. These ecosystems also provide storm surge protection, nurseries for key fisheries and other vital services. But climate change, especially accelerated sea-level rise, threatens their survival. This lecture will explore the global significance of coastal wetlands, and international research to understand carbon dynamics under a changing climate.
Time: Lectures begin at 7pm, with light refreshments at 6:30.
Place: Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, Schmidt Conference Center
647 Contees Wharf Rd
Edgewater, MD 21037   (directions)
