Salt marshes in Maryland, United States

Year: 2010
From collection: Blue Carbon
Taken by: Steven Lutz
Salt marshes are seen as one of the most biologically productive habitats on earth. They provide nutrients to coastal waters and therefore act as an important feeding and nursery ground for a large variety of animals, including commercially important fish and crustaceans. Salt marshes also function as efficient carbon sinks, helping to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, through sediment accumulation.
