Earth’s most efficient natural storage system: Land-building marsh plants are champions of carbon capture

Press/Media: ResearchAcademic

Description

Wetlands are Earth’s most efficient natural storage system for climate-warming carbon dioxide.

Human activities such as marsh draining for agriculture and logging are increasingly eating away at saltwater and freshwater wetlands. These vital areas cover only 1% of Earth’s surface but store more than 20% of all the climate-warming carbon dioxide absorbed by ecosystems worldwide.

A new study published on May 6, 2022, in the journal Science by a team of Dutch, American, and German scientists shows that it’s not too late to reverse the losses.

    DescriptionIn a study published in the journal Science, a team of researchers from the Netherlands, US and Germany shows that salt and freshwater wetlands capture and store huge amounts of CO2 through the plants that build these landscapes. The good news is that restoration of these wetlands is improving, amplifying their ability to be used as nature-based and sustainable tool for counteracting climate change.

Forscher haben nun zahlreiche Studien zu diesem Thema ausgewertet und kommen zu dem Ergebnis, dass dabei insbesondere Feuchtgebiete wie Moore, Salzwiesen, Mangrovenwälder und Seegraswiesen von Bedeutung sind. Absolut gesehen speichern sie zwar weniger CO2 als Ozeane und Wälder, doch in Relation zu ihrer Fläche sind sie besonders effizient. Den Autoren zufolge ist es daher für den Klimaschutz wichtig, Feuchtgebiete zu erhalten und wiederherzustellen.

    DescriptionIt is well known that CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels underlie the havoc being wrought by climate change. Stemming further emissions through innovations in sustainable energy production is certainly part of the solution. However, slowing global warming also hinges upon our ability to capture and retain CO2 from the atmosphere. In a study published today in the journal Science, a team of researchers from the Netherlands, U.S. and Germany shows that salt and freshwater wetlands capture and store huge amounts of CO2 through the plants that build these landscapes. The good news is that restoration of these wetlands is improving, amplifying their ability to be used as nature-based and sustainable tool for counteracting climate change.

    DescriptionHuman activities such as marsh draining for agriculture and logging are increasingly eating away at saltwater and freshwater wetlands that cover only 1% of Earth’s surface but store more than 20% of all the climate-warming carbon dioxide absorbed by ecosystems worldwide.
    A new study published May 6 in Science by a team of Dutch, American and German scientists shows that it’s not too late to reverse the losses.
