Tierra Resources Services
Tierra Resources provides scientific, financial, regulatory, and eco-asset development advisory services for landowners, corporations, nonprofits, and government entities that seek to mitigate the effects of climate change through blue carbon.
Research and Development
Working with endusers such as utilities and oil and gas companies, universities, nonprofits and government agencies, Tierra Resources performs wetland research, feasibility studies, and financial analysis to quantify and monetize the blue carbon found in wetland ecosystems and demonstrate the commercial viability of wetland offsets.
Methodology and Protocol Development
Tierra Resources developed the Restoration of Degraded Deltaic Wetlands of the Mississippi Delta carbon offset methodology that is the first-of-a-kind modular methodology for a broad range of wetland restoration activities. Tierra Resources can develop other rigorous science-based methodologies to calculate, report, and verify greenhouse gas emission reductions associated with offset projects.
Working with public utilities, local governments, businesses, large landowners and managers, Tierra Resources identifies and helps clients adopt new management or conservation practices to enhance wetland ecosystems.
Funding Mechanisms for Wetland Conservation and Restoration
Working with local and state governments and landowners, Tierra Resources applies innovative approaches to fund critical wetland restoration and conservation work.
Conversion to Sustainability
Working with industry and municipalities, Tierra Resources helps entities make the shift to sustainable technology and industrial processes, such as wetland assimilation of treated wastewater effluent.
Scenario Mapping and Modeling
Working with leading modelers, biologists, ecologists, bio-geochemists, hydrologists, and engineers, Tierra Resources analyzes property parcels, wetland management, and restoration potential to predict wetland emissions and sinks and the potential to monetize wetland-offsets.
Environmental Economic Analysis
Working with landowners, local government, planners, and private consulting firms, Tierra Resources analyzes urban and rural property for the potential to develop terrestrial offsets.
Tierra Resources develops and executes workshops and seminars and provides presentations to increase awareness about the multiple benefits of wetland restoration.
