Carbon Mineralization in Coastal Wetlands

Studies on blue carbon has strongly emphasized the storage potential of coastal wetlands. Currently, studies on carbon mineralization are patchy because they usually focus on either leaf litter/root decomposition or greenhouse gas emissions. Few studies systematically review the processes and principles of greenhouse gas production and emissions, and the linkage between litter/root decomposition and greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon Mineralization in Coastal Wetlands will fill the current knowledge gap in carbon mineralization and provide a balanced view of the carbon dynamics of coastal wetlands. Potential readers will get a holistic treatment of carbon mineralization, from litter/root decomposition pathways and their contribution to carbon mineralization, and the processes and sources of greenhouse gas production. The book will compare carbon mineralization in mangroves and saltmarshes and highlight the differences in carbon dynamics. Provide comprehensive perspectives on the processes and mechanisms of carbon mineralization in coastal wetlands Identify factors regulating organic matter decomposition and greenhouse gas emission Clarify the linkage between litter decomposition and greenhouse gas emission Unravel how greenhouse gas emissions are modified by anthropogenic activities, including eutrophication and deforestation

To achieve goals for climate and economic growth, "negative emissions technologies" (NETs) that remove and sequester carbon dioxide from the air will need to play a significant role in mitigating climate change. Unlike carbon capture and storage technologies that remove carbon dioxide emissions directly from large point sources such as coal power plants, NETs remove carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere or enhance natural carbon sinks. Storing the carbon dioxide from NETs has the same impact on the atmosphere and

The role of biochar in improving soil fertility is increasingly being recognized and is leading to recommendations of biochar amendment of degraded soils. In addition, biochars offer a sustainable tool for managing organic wastes and to produce added-value products. The benefits of biochar use in agriculture and forestry can span enhanced plant productivity, an increase in soil C stocks, and a reduction of nutrient losses from soil and non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions. Nevertheless, biochar composition and properties and, therefore, its

Good management practices for carbon and nitrogen are vital to crop productivity and soil sustainability, as well as to the reduction of global greenhouse gases and environmental pollution. Since the 1950's, mathematical models have advanced our understanding of carbon and nitrogen cycling at both the micro- and macro-scales. However, many of the models are scattered in the literature, undergo constant modification, and similar models can have different names. Modeling Carbon and Nitrogen Dynamics for Soil Management clarifies the confusion by

Sea level rise and coastal erosion had drawn an increasing awareness recently as the repercussion of increase of sea level and coastal erosion would reshape the earth's system and induce a tremendous loss in ecological or economics cost. Governments are dedicated to meliorate the occurrence of these phenomena, or else all creations on the earth will suffer from the catastrophe. Global warming is one of the crucial factors resulting in the increase of sea level and coastal erosion. Remote sensing

Coastal wetlands are under a great deal of pressure from the dual forces of rising sea level and the intervention of human populations both along the estuary and in the river catchment. Direct impacts include the destruction or degradation of wetlands from land reclamation and infrastructures. Indirect impacts derive from the discharge of pollutants, changes in river flows and sediment supplies, land clearing, and dam operations. As sea level rises, coastal wetlands in most areas of the world migrate landward
