5.Measuring sequestered Carbon in coastal Vegetation (seagrasses and mangroves)
Gulf of Mexico Carbon studies.
 
We have just completed a study from Florida to Mexico of sequestered carbon showing massive losses over the last century in the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico USA portion contains about 51 Tg carbon. Restored seagrass stores substantially more carbon than does natural seagrass, showing that conservation of seagrass should occur and large efforts to restore seagrasses where they have previously been should occur. Sponsored by Commission for Environmental Cooperation in North America.

6.Pollution from Puerto Rican South Coast Rivers.   
 

WE are studying six varying rivers on the South coast of Puerto Rico to bring information to government and citizens of how the rivers influence seagrass and secondarily corals sustainability for fisheries and for ecological health on the fragile South Coast.

Large river basins from the mountains running down the backbone of Puerto Rico drain farmland, urban centers down into the short shelf, in which much national and local tourism and fisheries occurs. Why are there large barren of seagrass areas at the River's mouths. Is this reversible?

Rivers we are studying are Rio Loco, , Rio Matilde, Rio Portugues, Rio Bucano, Rio Descalabrado, Rio   Coamo.
