GAUGE: Greenhouse gAs Uk and Global Emissions
The main focus of GAUGE is to quantify the UK GHG budget in order to underpin the development of effective emission reduction policies. The UK GHG budget will be put into a global context by providing extended analyses on European and global scales.
GAUGE will address this objective by integrating inter- calibrated information from ground-based, airborne, ferry-borne, balloon-borne, and space-borne sensors, including new sensor technology, allowing us to lay the foundations of a new measurement infrastructure that will deliver beyond GAUGE. We will incorporate world-class modelling expertise.
GAUGE is led by the University of Edinburgh and consists of researchers from the Universities of Bristol, Leicester, Leeds, Manchester, and Cambridge, the UK Met Office, NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, and STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
