ERTDI Report 35 – Jennings et al., May 2006
An analysis of the Mace Head atmospheric record to provide a synthesis estimate of the fluxes of CO2, CH4 and N2O for Ireland over the period 1995–2000.The proposed atmospheric method is entirely independent of statistical inventories, and therefore constitutes a unique ‘top–down’ verification of Irish greenhouse gas emissions inventories.
ERTDI Report 46 - Special Report - O'Mara, January 2006
Emission factors for methane from enteric fermentation and manure management were developed for the categories of the Irish cattle herd for which data on animal numbers are available from the Central Statistics Office.
ERTDI Report 47 - Tomlinson, January 2006
Estimates of baseline inventories of carbon stocks in vegetation (biomass) and in soils. It is essential to know the carbon stores and fluxes (emissions to or fixation from the atmosphere) of land-cover types and land-cover/soil combinations so that policy may be directed.
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
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.
