Description

This dataset contains shapefiles showing location of tidal wetland parcels with the potential for net greenhouse gas removal if restored from current mapped condition to unimpeded tidal wetlands. These maps focus on managed lands in the contiguous United States along the ocean coasts and show impounded wetlands where reconnecting tidal flow could diminish methane production. The maps include current dominant wetland type, restoration category, potential removal of atmospheric greenhouse gases in units of mass carbon dioxide with estimates of uncertainty.
