Research Expertise


  • Title
    • Modelling greenhouse gas emissions
  • Summary
    • As part of the multi-institutional Agri-i (An Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Initiative for Ireland) the aim of my research is to use measured nitrogen and carbon flux data from a variety of agricultural treatments to parameterise existing Greenhouse Gas models. The models will then be used to evaluate the impact of mitigation measures, especially changes in the fertiliser regime, on a regional scale.

  • Title
    • Identification of grassland management and land-use change using high resolution spatial databases
  • Summary
    • Grasslands have been identified to be an important part in Ireland's national greenhouse gas budget. Research has shown that they can act both as carbon source or sink, depending on management practices. Also the trajectory of land-use change to and from grassland has a significant impact on carbon stocks associated with grasslands. Currently large scale identification of management regimes and spatially explicit mapping of land-use change is not conducted in Ireland. The aim of the project is to use the land parcel identification system (LPIS) to refine grassland classification and to spatially explicitly identify land-use change.
