The USGS LandCarbon program, is using MERIS 1km Chlorophyll and total suspended sediment estimates to determine the impact of sediment discharge on settling and burial of anthropogenic carbon on the U.S. conterminous coastal shelf. In addition, estimates and projections of carbon sequestration on the coastal shelf depend on remotely sensed data (Landsat, WorldView2) to model land use and land change associated with climate variability based on IPCC scenarios.
