Offshorewind farms increase carbon storage in seabeds - useful knowledge for marine spatial planning and climate change modeling
Two newly published papers describe in detail how organic matter is concentrated in and around wind farms and deposited in lower quantities at greater distances. This provides greater carbon sequestration in the seabed of the wind farms.
Businesses, government bodies, and other scientific institutions involved in the sustainable exploitation of sand, gravel, wind energy will find an answer to the question “what can ILVO do for me?” here. You’ll get a brief overview of relevant expertise, analyses, infrastructure, and the professional approach that characterizes ILVO.
The focus is on nature-inclusive works, such as natural coastal defense, integrated aquaculture systems, and nature-inclusive offshorewind farms. ILVO also emphasizes the importance of climate adaptation and mitigation in (future) marine activities. This requires not only monitoring, but co-creative innovation as well.
