Greenhouse Gas Fluxes and Carbon Storage Dynamics in Playa Wetlands: Restoration Potential to Mitigate Climate Change

March 22, 2016

Dr. Dale W. Daniel, a professional with SCS Engineers recently published a summary article of his dissertation research through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Conservation Effects Assessment Project. The primary goal of the research was to provide understanding of the potential climate mitigation services provided through wetland conservation and restoration in the High Plains region, U.S. Focus was placed on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from wetland and adjacent upland landscapes as well as identifying some of the drivers of GHG flux that are influenced by various land man¬agement practices. They also sought to understand how sediment removal from wetland basins influenced C and N content as well as C sequestration services.
