Mangrove Science pulls together research from a network of forest ecologists, remote sensing scientists, hydrologists, local officials, and members of the community to understand how the landscape of mangrove forests change over time.
We have partnerships with organizations and institutions all over the world. The research highlighted on Mangrove Science represents a collection of field-campaigns, stakeholder engagements, and remote sensing data products that collectively will help build our understanding of the coastal dynamics between human development, sea-level rise, and carbon-dense ecosystems like mangroves.
