Delta Wetlands and Resilience: Blue Carbon and Marsh Accretion (Project)
Restoring wetlands in the Delta can mitigate subsidence, sequester carbon, reduce GHG emissions, and provide habitat for wetland-dependent species. These benefits–their magnitude, scope, and resilience to future sea level rise–depend on the type and siting of new wetlands; rates of carbon accumulation, GHG emissions, and vertical accretion; and opportunities for wetlands to migrate upslope.
