Today on #WorldMangroveDay, we're appreciating these salt-tolerant trees that live where the ocean meets the coast. 🌊🌳 Mangroves provide essential habitat for thousands of species. They also stabilize shorelines, and play an essential role as carbon sinks. 📷@octavioaburto A photo of 3 researchers wo...
Researchers @octavioaburto, @MangroveMatt, @_hsumar, and others at Scripps have studied #mangroves in places like Mexico and the Galápagos Islands. They've been sampling mangrove sediments to understand understand carbon storage in these coastal ecosystems. #WorldMangroveDay An underwater image facing ...
In this video by @NatGeoEducation, Scripps marine biologist Astrid Hsu (@_hsumar) describes how she and other researchers use remote sensing, including satellites and drones, to study mangroves and inform conservation efforts: #WorldMangroveDay

Today is #WorldMangrovesDay. So let me remind you. #Mangroves;

- acts as buffer & reduce impact of cyclones & #storm surge.
- they break the #wind force
- provide #habitat to #animals during cyclone or otherwise
- they reduce #pollution.

We just need to protect them.
So how it works. Mangroves create a maze & dense habitat. With species which are salt tolerant & special adaptations. They act like buffer & consume the winds & energy. So after passing the storms get dampen. You must have read in ‘Theory of Vibration’.
They are prop roots. In #mangrove #ecosystem they are adventitious support roots. They Grow down from lateral branches, in a way support trees, with doing other root functions. Additionally roots buffer against damage to coasts & enhance biodiversity & carbon sequestration.

Here's a compilation of some timelapse animations that show different stories from across India over the 3 decades (1989 - 2018) . Created with @googleearth @EarthOutreach #newyear2020

1: Restless #Brahmaputra n tributaries meandering,changing course in #Assam
2. Growth of Brick Kiln industry in the banks of #Hooghly, #Rupnarayan rivers near #Kolkata (brown polygons close to the rivers' banks) #WestBengal
3. Embankment failure in #Kosi River (2008) caused flooding. It also left a sediment footprint that was visible from satellites. #Bihar
