High Resolution Automated Greenhouse Gas Analysers for Freshwater Ecosystems

Research Infrastructure

Summary

One of the most important strategies for combatting climate change is the restoration of natural freshwater ecosystems in the landscape from retired agricultural land. Organic soils that have been drained for agriculture produce large amounts of greenhouse gases. This project will use new, highly sensitive instruments to measure the exchange of important greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide) between the soil and atmosphere during restoration projects. It will help landscape managers achieve successful climate-friendly restoration projects, that store carbon in the soil and with minimal greenhouse gas emissions.
