‘Blue carbon’ refers to carbon stored and sequestered by natural marine habitats. Orkney is surrounded by coastal ecosystems with seagrass, kelp forests, saltmarsh and maerl beds all having a vital role to play. Dr Joanne Porter from Heriot-Watt ICIT will discuss her research as part of this global initiative which aims to better understand how oceans can mitigate climate change. All welcome.
