New website has climate change news and resources

Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Accounting
14 September 2005

 

The Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Accounting has launched a
redeveloped web site with up-to-date news on climate change, details of the
Centre's research findings, and links to online calculators,
decision-support tools and models for natural resource management and
agriculture.

The Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Accounting is a collaboration
of scientists across Australia leading research in:

.        measuring, forecasting and accounting for carbon pools in soil,
biomass, and wood products 

.        plant interactions with elevated concentrations of carbon dioxide,
climate change, nutrient availability, and stress 

.        risks to the carbon cycle posed by climate variability and change

.        ecological and hydrological impacts of climate change

.        systems and practices to minimise greenhouse gas emissions in
agriculture 

The new website, at  <http://www.greenhouse.crc.org.au/>
http://www.greenhouse.crc.org.au/ , has sections on counting carbon in
soils, forests and trees, rangelands, wood products, and at continental
scale; the impact of climate change on plant growth, woody thickening, and
changes to the water cycle; greenhouse in agriculture, including in the
dairy, grains and cotton industries, and with research into methane and
nitrous oxide as well as carbon dioxide; reducing greenhouse through carbon
sinks and best management practices; and online tools.

It also carries up-to-date news on climate change, and includes a link to
the Centre's free monthly emailed newsletter, eCarbon News, a digest of
climate change, policy, energy, and emissions trading news from around the
world.
