Mr Connor Gorham

Overview of thesis

My research will investigate the blue carbon storage potential of mangrove and tidal marsh ecosystems between Esperance and Shark Bay, Western Australia to improve our understanding of the inter- and intra-habitat variability of sedimentary carbon stocks and sequestration rates. The focus will be on identifying the factors controlling carbon stocks and accumulation rates among ecosystems, including physical, chemical and biological variables. Additionally, the data collected will contribute toward estimating the socio-economic relevance of mangrove and tidal marshes as blue carbon stores.
