Final Report - ERTDI Report 43 - Daly , May 2006
Eutrophication study using three modelling approaches to capture a range of modelling complexities and methodologies that could be applied to Irish data. The three modelling studies captured physically based, empirical and risk assessment (multi-criteria) models.
Final Report - ERTDI Report 42 - Daly et al , May 2006
Research relating water quality data to catchment characteristics, and deriving a model that describes or predicts P levels in Irish surface waters.
Final Report - ERTDI Report 40 - Doody et al , May 2006
Investigates processes controlling phosphorus (P) loss in overland flow, to identify, describe and evaluate mechanisms responsible for this observed increase in dissolved P concentration with an increase in overland flow rate.
ERTDI Report 36 - Mc Grath et al., May 2005
An analysis of future Irish climate conditions for 2021–2060, based on outputs from a new regional climate modelling facility in Met Éireann
Final Report (2000-MS-5-M1) - Lucy et al , May 2005
This study aims to quantify the total number and biomass of zebra mussels and assess changes to the population during the course of the study. Relevant water parameters and phytoplankton samples were analysed; direct ecological changes were also noted during the project.
Final Report - ERTDI Report 24 - Ó Riain et al , May 2005
The development of a methodology for identifying water-dependent habitats and hence protected areas with such habitats. It recorded these sites in digital form within a combined database and mapping system and recorded the water-dependent habitats and the species they contain.
Final Report - ERTDI report 28 - Stewart, May 2005
The project examined a potential solution to some aspects of the problem of slurry disposal from large-scale intensive pig units.
ERTDI Report 23 - Scott, May 2005
Examines the implementation of a fertiliser tax as an incentive to farmers to apply fertilisers more sensitively with the objective of reducing contamination.
Final Report - ERTDI Report 41 - Kurz et al , May 2005
Project measuring the impact of cattle on soil physical properties relevant to the hydrological characteristics of a site, and assessing whether their presence is likely to influence the quality of the overland flow produced at a site.
ERTDI Report 38 - Final Report - Daly et al , May 2005
An examination of the impact of soil chemical properties on P sorption and desorption, so that a risk assessment of P loss from soil types could be developed using identifiable soil chemical characteristics.
ERTDI Report 21 - Bergin et al., May 2004
Examines the proposal for a tax applied on the carbon content of all forms of energy consumed in Ireland.
ERTDI Report 40 - Scott et al., May 2004
Analyses the effects of the introduction of a carbon tax in order to see how it would affect different households. The report focuses especially on vulnerable households.
Final Report - ERTDI Report 13 - Jennings et al , May 2003
Study of phosphate discharges to water bodies, as part of the large-scale study
Final Report - ERTDI Report 14 - K. Daly & A. Casey, May 2003
This project on soil P testing questions conventional sample depth, sample pre-treatment, choice of extractant and extract ratios against a background of dissolved reactive P (DRP) and suspended solids (SS) concentrations monitored from the same sample sites.
ERTDI Report 2 - Sweeney et al., May 2002
Research assessing a very wide range of potential indicators of climate change, and establishing several potentially valuable data sources which satisfy or partially satisfy the requirements that a good indicator should have.
Final report - ERTDI report 6 - van der Werf et al , May 2002
The key goal of this document was to formulate a national strategy to develop adequate, stable and reliable PBMW-compost market and non-market outlets
Final report - ERTDI report 8 - Ozdemiroglu et al , May 2002
Economic and non-economic approaches to assessing environmental effects.
Final Report - ERTDI report 9 - O’Mahony et al , May 2002
Review of recent international literature on environmental impacts of the transport sector and on the integration of environmental considerations into transport planning and operations
Final Report - ERTDI Report 1 - Irvine et al , May 2002
Desk study to review monitoring and research requirements for implementing the Water Framework Directive, and the state of preparation of Ireland within the timescale and milestones prescribed.
