My research aims to investigate the blue carbon storage potential of tidal marsh ecosystems throughout temperate Western Australia, while identifying the factors driving inter- and intra-habitat variability of sedimentary carbon stocks; including physical, chemical and biological variables. The data gathered for this project will fill a substantial knowledge gap in regards to the role tidal marsh ecosystems play as blue carbon sinks throughout Australia, and will be further used to estimate the potential economic value of restoring and conserving Western Australia’s temperate tidal marsh ecosystems in the frame of the Emissions Reduction Fund.
