Abstract

Associated data and R code for the paper Epstein & Roberts 2022 - "Does biodiversity focused protection of the seabed deliver carbon benefits? A UK case study." This repository contains the spatial datalayers and associated R code used to derive the statistics on potential carbon benefits from different biodiversity focused spatial management measures in the UK. The input data required can be found in an asociatted reposititory from the PLOS Climate paper Epstein & Roberts (2022) Identifying priority areas to manage mobile bottom fishing on seabed carbon in the UK. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pclm.0000059.
