- with the policy challange: Land use
CXC commissioned the James Hutton Institute to develop a free, easy-to-use tool for land managers to enable them to compare the measured organic matter and carbon content of their topsoil to typical values for Scotland.
This study identifies the indicators which could support the monitoring of Scotland's soil health and measure the vulnerability of Scottish soils to climate change in future.
This short study updates an earlier analysis of the available land area that might be suitable for planting new woodlands. It finds the amount has increased by 10% to an estimated 2.96 million hectares.
A feasibility study into whether manure/slurry exchanges could be an effective tool in helping cut greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
This evidence review considers the potential for nitrogen and urease inhibitors to support greenhouse gas emission reductions from fertiliser in Scotland.
This report considers the implications of a shift in forest management through the lens of species diversity.
A Rapid Evidence Assessment of the role of peat in UK growing media and the potential for alternatives.
Identifying trends for snow cover days in the Cairngorms National Park based historic temperature and precipitation data, observed snow cover days and climate projections.
This review estimates the periods when peatland restoration may – or may not – be possible due to snow cover or other accessibility issues.
A comparative analysis of existing input-output models for the accounting of nitrogen in the atmosphere.
This review provides a deeper understanding of the readiness of certain GGR approaches, and their potential applicability and implementation pathways in Scotland.
