Blue Carbon as a Canadian Climate Change Solution: Modelling the Mitigation Potential of Kelp Under Future Climate Change Scenarios

University of Victoria - Canada

Project

This endorsed project aims to quantify the blue carbon potential of kelp ecosystems in Canada and will provide a quantitative assessment of the future extent of kelp forests, and their potential to mitigate climate change. The project represents the first Canada-wide estimates of kelp distribution.
