Mangroves help protect against sea level rise

23 julio 2015

Mangrove forests could play a crucial role in protecting coastal areas from sea level rise caused by climate change, according to new research. Scientists did leading-edge mathematical simulations to study how mangrove forests respond to elevated sea levels. Taking New Zealand mangrove data as the basis of a new modelling system, the team were able to predict what will happen to different types of estuaries and river deltas when sea levels rise.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
