  1. 1. Carbon sequestration processes in tropical seagrass beds

    Author : Liberatus Dominick Lyimo; Mats Björk; Martin Gullström; Mariam Hamis; Teresa Alcoverro; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Seagrass; Carbon sequestration; Carbon sink; Eutrophication; Productivity; Nitrous oxide; Methane; Greenhouse gases; Tropical; Eastern Africa; växtfysiologi; Plant Physiology;

    Abstract : Seagrass meadows may play a substantial role in climate change mitigation as they are capable to sequester and store substantial amounts of anthropogenic carbon in plant biomass and, more importantly, in their underlying sediments. In this PhD thesis, the carbon-burial potential was assessed by quantifying the amount of organic carbon stored in different seagrass meadows, each dominated by one of the four major seagrass species in the Western Indian Ocean region.

  2. 2. An evaluation of solar powered irrigation as carbon offset projects

    Author : Alexander Olsson; Jinyue Yan; Björn Frostell; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; carbon offset; carbon sequestration; clean development mechanism; climate change adaptation; desertification; solar power water pumping; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Carbon offsets have been developed as one tool to incentivise investments by developed nations in climate change mitigation activities in developing countries. The carbon offsets can be used towards the countries’ own mitigation targets but are also meant to benefit developing countries by providing a pathway to clean development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Natural and human-induced carbon storage variability in seagrass meadows

    Author : Martin Dahl; Martin Gullström; Miguel A Mateo; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Blue carbon sequestration; Carbon storage variability; Seagrass meadows; Anthropogenic disturbances; Climate change; marin ekologi; Marine Ecology;

    Abstract : Seagrasses are considered highly important CO2 sinks, with the capacity to store substantial quantities of organic carbon in the living biomass and sediments, and thereby acting as a buffer against climate change. In this thesis, I have studied carbon storage variability in temperate and tropical seagrass habitats and identified factors influencing this variation. READ MORE
