But new analysis suggests many marshes and mangroves could be saved if they were able to move farther inland. That's good news, as wetlands help absorb excess CO2 and serve as a vital buffer against damaging storms and flooding. Some studies have shown wetlands save hundreds of lives and millions of dollars. To better understand the fates of coastal wetlands, an international team of scientists collected and analyzed data from the around the world. Researchers lo...
