This poster features values for carbon sequestration ecosystem services in the Hudson and the Delaware estuary systems. They are calculated under different intensities of dredging. The research is an ongoing part the NSF-Funded Coastal SEES work on dredging in the Hudson and Delaware, and its impacts on ecosystem services.
Here I am using ArcGIS to economically value changes in coastal aesthetics to quantify changes in ecosystem service delivery. The context is near and off-shore development projects (wave energy facilities and fin fish aquaculture) off Vancouver Island. This analysis was part of the Stanford Woods Inst. Natural Capital Project’s training session March 25-28 2014, for which I receivedContinue reading “Using ArcGIS to model valuation of ecosystem services: aesthetics and cultural valuation techniques”
