Description

CO2-release from the fields at Gyldensteen Strand before and after flooding with sea water; in a local, national and global perspective.

CO2 release from agricultural soil was measured in situ from the Gyldensteen Strand area and on sea water flooded cores in the laboratory. These measurements provided the basis for a carbon budget used to estimate the climate impact of restoring agricultural soil to wetland. The results were put in context with the 2012 emission coals of Denmark and is was discussed if the restoration method used in the Gyldensteen Project could provide a tool in the climate change combat.
