ERTDI Report 40 - Scott et al., May 2004

Year: 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.

Water Framework Directive: Development Of A Methodology For The Characterisation Of Unpolluted Groundwater

Final Report (2002-W-DS/7-M1) - Buss et al , January 2004

Year: 2004

The principal aim of this project was to develop a methodology for the derivation of the natural background quality for Irish groundwater bodies (it was not the intention to determine the composition of pristine groundwater bodies). International groundwater characterisation methodologies were also reviewed.
