Australian Mangrove and Saltmarsh Network Conference

The Australian Mangrove and Saltmarsh Network Conference in Hobart was recently attended by Barefoot Biogeochemistry researchers Damien Maher and James Sippo. The catastrophic mangrove dieback in the Gulf of Carpentaria was one of the central themes of the meeting. The ‘Barefoot’ researchers have been focusing on the changes to the coastal carbon cycle following the large scale mangrove dieback which occurred in December 2015. It was a great opportunity to meet with collaborating researchers from all across Australia to discuss the topic.
