We use data from field measurements to develop biophysical models of greenhouse gas fluxes from the land. These models help us to understand the interactions between climate and management practices and their impacts on greenhouse gas emissions, productivity and water quality.
We also investigate novel methods to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Field measurements enable us to quantify the actual reduction that may be achieved in the field and modelling enables us to scale up these results and assess the potential benefit at a wider scale.
Is my paddock carbon-neutral? How our scientists contribute to understanding global climate change
Measuring fluxes, the uptake or release of gases from a surface, is a crucial part of climate science. A method known as eddy covariance,...
