Short summary
Carbon stored in coastal wetlands is of global relevance to climate regulation, but broadscale inventories of this "blue carbon" are lacking. Sampling salt marshes in the UK, we developed a predictive tool with the capacity to predict up to 44 % of spatial variation in soil carbon from simple observations of plant community and soil type. Marsh-specific maps of soil carbon were also produced, demonstrating the application of this easy-to-use tool for landscape-scale predictions of blue carbon.
