Blue Carbon in Marine Protected Areas Part 3:
AN EVALUATION OF SEDIMENTARY CARBON STOCKS IN GREATER FARALLONES AND CORDELL BANK NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARIES
Blue Carbon in Marine Protected Areas: Part 3 demonstrates the carbon storage value of offshore marine
protected areas and identifies seafloor carbon “hotspots” based on a novel relationship between sediment
grain size and organic carbon content. This report provides an estimate of carbon storage in the
sanctuaries’ surficial sediments, and discusses various sources of disturbance to the seabed and the
importance of seabed protection.
