Coastal Carbon: Quantifying the Sedimentary Carbon within Scotland's Sea Lochs - University of Stirling

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


The coastal carbon cycle is a complex and a largely ignored part of the global carbon cycle. Recently there has been a push to better understand the carbon in the coastal ocean. The first step is to quantify the existing stores; this presentation outlines the development of a joint geophysics and geochemical methodology for the creation of a sedimentary carbon inventory for Loch Sunart. Through up-scaling we are able to estimate the carbon held within the sediment of all of Scotland’s sea lochs.
