Climate-driven decoupling of wetland and upland biomass trends on the mid-Atlantic coast

The Kirwan group at VIMS has developed a study to¬†systematically evaluate the dynamic association between four decades of sea-level driven coastal landscape organization and ecosystem carbon pools along the rapidly warming and receding coast of the U.S. mid-Atlantic region. By integrating observations across traditional ecosystem boundaries, the results pointed to a fundamental decoupling between negative…
