The fifteenth factsheet of the RIVEAL project continues a series of information documents presenting the project outcomes. This factsheet – River regulation effects in riparian carbon stock – features the latest scientific knowledge about the effects of river regulation and land use changes in the carbon storage by riparian woods. In particular, this factsheet shows the potential of riparian carbon storage compared with upland forests, its increase after the hydrological regulation and the high variability along the river. The influence of different river regulation types on carbon storage was also analysed.
