Scientists are trying to better understand these carbon sinks
We've found a carbon sink
in the most unlikely place," says Yan Li, an ecologist at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Urumqi.
One remarkable thing about seagrass meadows is that, if restored, they can effectively and rapidly sequester carbon and re-establish lost carbon sinks
,' said Karen McGlathery, of the University of Virginia, one of the paper's co-authors.
seagrass meadows, mangroves and salt marshes, shows they have a much greater capacity to progressively trap carbon than land carbon sinks
Trees are excellent carbon sinks
that absorb carbon dioxide that warms up the globe.
and climate change; forests in the fight against global warming.
We have all but destroyed one of the earth's most natural carbon sinks
, thus knocking nature off balance and accelerating the GHG effect.
Micro-Tek has capitalized on the potential of mycorrhizae to enhance carbon sinks
with forestry projects in Canada and Chile.
In addition, forests act as carbon sinks
, soaking up the carbon dioxide that we humans continually pump into the atmosphere, and purifying the air for us.
The clearing of forests and other natural cover to create land for grazing and crop production also destroys important carbon sinks
We must also work together to move towards the IETA vision of a larger, more liquid market that evolves to include all six Kyoto gases from a wider range of sources, taking carbon sinks
into account, with scope to link to other GHG emissions trading markets meeting similar compliance objectives.
Robert Jackson and William Schlesinger of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, wanted to know how realistic proposals like carbon sinks
