LIFE OrgBalt article “GHG emissions measurement and sampling in agricultural lands: towards data-driven decision making for managing carbon rich organic soilsarea maps for the Baltics: improved understanding of the spatial distribution of soil moisture“ is AVAILABLE HERE.
The lack of data on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in carbon-rich organic soils in the Baltics and Finland is one of the main motives for implementing the project LIFE OrgBalt. During the project, demonstration sites on agricultural lands are used for testing and evaluation various climate change mitigation measures (CCM).
GHG emissions in demo sites are monitored using GHG measurement methodologies developed within the project, including supplementary data on biomass production, weather conditions, soil and water properties. The long-term impact of the CCM measures will be modelled using the scenario analysis tool elaborated and tested within the project.
