We have had an exciting couple of months at CBESS working on our end of project outputs; a carbon predication tool for ecosystem managers and a complimentary citizen science app.
We are an island nation, and yet we know surprisingly little about parts of our coastline. An appeal to ‘citizen scientists’ hopes to put this right by encouraging us to collect information about our salt marshes to fill in the gaps.
Cultural benefits and recreation in the coastal zone: the valuable but awkward cousin in the Ecosystem Services Framework (ESF).
Over the coming months the CBESS team at Bangor University will be finalising a saltmarsh carbon stock prediction tool to be launched in June alongside ‘The Saltmarsh App’.
