Blue carbon projects

Scottish Government initiated a blue carbon research programme in 2018 to better inform future policy and management decisions concerning blue carbon. The research programme comprises post-graduate PhD research programmes at Scottish universities that investigate various blue carbon topics, covering the Scottish territorial sea and wider UK marine area. This research is conducted in the context of international blue carbon research and places Scotland at the forefront of blue carbon research, both in the UK and internationally.
