Research 130: Irish Soils Information System

Research 130: Rachel Creamer, Reamonn Fealy, Stephen Hallett, Jack Hannam, Nick Holden, Bob Jones, Thomas Mayr, Iolanda Simo, Rogier Schulte, September 2014

Year: 2014

The overall objective of the Irish Soil Information System project was to conduct a programme of structured research into the national distribution of soil types and construct a soil map, at 1:250,000 scale, which would identify and describe the soils according to a consistent national legend.

Sustainability - EPA Research Strategy 2014-2020

Year: 2014

The environment is a strategic and valuable asset for Ireland which must be protected and proactively managed to ensure it forms the basis for a healthy society and our economic wellbeing.

Water - EPA Research Strategy 2014-2020

Year: 2014

Ireland’s waters are one of our major natural resources. Plentiful availability of good quality water offers a significant competitive advantage to sectors such as agriculture, industry and tourism. Water is a resource that must be carefully managed, and improving water quality status is a national priority for Ireland.

Climate - EPA Research Strategy 2014-2020

Year: 2014

Climate change remains an unresolved collective challenge. Actions to address its causes and consequences are needed. These actions can also give rise to major societal benefits and development opportunities. The 2014-2020 period is central to advancing actions on climate change.

STRIVE 124 Summary thumbnail

STRIVE 124 - Summary of Findings

STRIVE 124 - Web-based monitoring of gas emissions from landfill sites using autonomous sensor platforms, April 2014

Year: 2014

Autonomous sensor platforms were developed by the research team in Dublin City University (DCU) allowing for long-term continuous monitoring of greenhouse gases and extraction pressure. Web-based accessibility via integrated telemetry facilitated data access and visualisation from remote deployments. These platforms were employed principally on landfill sites.
