- with the policy challange: Land use
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.
A possible method for estimating floodplain loss and corresponding flood risk impacts.
Different animals emit different levels of greenhouse gases. This report pulls together the current evidence for different types, size and breeds of cattle in Scotland.
Developing a robust method for generating intensity data for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on Scottish farms.
This report summarises the extent certain agricultural practice changes in Scotland are (or could be) recognised in the smart inventory.
This report examines how Scotland’s agricultural soils might sequester carbon as part of an overall approach to mitigate against, and adapt to, climate change.
This briefing draws together the results of several projects that examined how the peatland responds when trees are removed from former conifer plantations on deep peat and the drainage channels are blocked.
The evidence base for the effectiveness of nitrogen fixing crops is largely based on research and experience at a UK and European level. ClimateXChange was asked by Scottish Government to explore the current state of confident knowledge for their application, and their potential benefits for farm business (commercial as well as on-farm) under Scottish circumstances (i.e. soil, climate, markets, etc). This policy briefing explores the initial findings.
An assessment of the impact of the 2018 summer heatwave on private water supplies in Scotland.
