Total Greenhouse Gas Exchange from a Beef Cattle Farm Using Direct Whole Farm Measurements

Total Greenhouse Gas Exchange from a Beef Cattle Farm Using Direct Whole Farm Measurements

Many anthropogenic activities are significant sources of greenhouse gasses, however not all emissions are as easy to quantify as the direct burning of fossil fuels (e.g. for transportation or electricity). Other significant sources of greenhouse gasses including agriculture can be harder to quantify due to the increased number of variables involved. In Canada, this sector […]

Comparing Results of High and Low Frequency Measurements of Greenhouse Gas Fluxes

Comparing Results of High and Low Frequency Measurements of Greenhouse Gas Fluxes

The emission of greenhouse gasses from soils is caused by dynamic factors such as temperature and moisture. These two factors are also influenced by a multitude of external factors such as diel cycles, land management, wetting/drying events and seasonality; which all lead to a high level of variability in greenhouse gasses emitted (Savage et al., […]

Heat Wave Effects on Greenhouse Gas Flux in Shallow Lakes

Heat Wave Effects on Greenhouse Gas Flux in Shallow Lakes

Freshwater systems are an important component on global carbon and nutrient cycles; having a disproportionally large impact given their small global surface area (Davidson et al., 2015). Generally, inland aquatic systems are considered to be carbon sources on an annual basis, however, their output can vary significantly (Tangen et al., 2016). The size of water […]

Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Reservoir Water Surfaces: A New Global Synthesis

Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Reservoir Water Surfaces: A New Global Synthesis

When we think of greenhouse gases, the first thing that comes to mind is the pollution caused by our activities; emissions from cars, factories and landfills. But lower in our consciousness is the impact of a structure typically seen as green and eco-friendly, the reservoir. Dams are helpful, whether it’s for hydropower, flood control, water supplies, […]

Hedgerow Management as a Viable GHG Mitigation Strategy: Does it work?

Hedgerow Management as a Viable GHG Mitigation Strategy: Does it work?

Hedgerow Management Strategies as Viable GHG Mitigation: Does it work? Hedgerows have been important parts of managed farmlands for centuries in Europe, traditionally used to mark land boundaries, preventing soil loss from wind erosion, and used for fuels if managed properly. Today they still offer these same benefits, however their ecological importance is highlighted as […]

Infrared Gas Analyzers vs. Gas Chromatography in Coastal Ecosystems

Infrared Gas Analyzers vs. Gas Chromatography in Coastal Ecosystems

Out with the old, in with the new? A recent study by Brannon and colleagues (2016) out of the Moseman-Valtierra Lab aimed to compare ye olde gas chromatograph (Shimadzu GC-2014) with the newer technologies of a cavity ring down spectroscopy (CRDS) gas analyzer (Picarro, Model G2508) and an off-axis integrated cavity output spectroscopy (OA-ICOS) analyzer […]
