CoastClim publishes papers that explore the links between marine coastal biodiversity, carbon sequestration and atmospheric feedbacks in our changing world. The publications thus span the topics of carbon and nutrient cycling in coastal habitats, benthic and pelagic biodiversity, greenhouse gas dynamics and aerosol formation. Please find links to the peer-reviewed articles below.
