Agricultural greenhouse gas mitigation and modelling

We develop biophysical models capable of quantifying the impacts and trade-offs from land use and management decisions, and use our improved process understanding to investigate innovative solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation.

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.
