Coastal marsh migration may further fuel climate change

Source: Science Daily

As rising sea levels cause marshes to move inland in six mid-Atlantic states, coastal habitats will not serve as a carbon sink but instead will release more carbon into the atmosphere, a new modeling study finds. The research raises questions about the persistence of coastal habitats’ carbon benefits in the face of sea level rise.
