Publications

Publications arising from one of the projects in the Greenhouse Gases Feedback and Emissions Programme:

In August 2014, over 30 scientists from GAUGE, GREENHOUSE and external practitioners from industry and research institutions tested various flux approaches to measure GHG emissions from a landfill site in Ipswich for two weeks. Grant Allen (Uni Manchester) has written an article about this landfill study for the Spring 2015 issue of the NERC journal Planet Earth.
