Gara Villalba gives a talk on the GHG monitoring network

5 December 2022

Gara Villalba gave a short talk on the GHG monitoring network that she and her team are setting up in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona. This presentation was part of the ICOS ERIC 17th General Assembly Info Day, which took place in Madrid the days 22nd and 23rd of November 2022 in a session hosted by the Minisitry of Science of Spain Maria Vallejo.

Funded PhD position to work with the URBAG team in atmospheric modeling

11 November 2022

The main goal of this PhD position is to assess the impacts of green infrastructure to reduce GHG in urban areas. To achieve this, the candidate will work with the Weather and Research Forecasting model (WRF) coupled with chemical transport (WRF-Chem) with the GHG tracer option called WRF-GHG coupled to the UCM BEP+BEM (Building Effect Parameterization coupled with Building Energy Model). The PhD position is funded by the LaCaixa INPhINIT doctoral fellowships offered through the doctoral programme of ICTA-UAB

Publication in Science of The Total Environment

Title: Mapping direct N2O emissions from peri-urban agriculture: The case of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona / Geographically explicit datasets reflecting local management of crops are needed to help improve direct nitrous oxide (N2O) emission inventories. Yet, the lack of geographically explicit datasets of relevant factors influencing the emissions make it difficult to estimate them in such way.

Open data: GHG measurement station at ICTA-UAB

9 September 2021

URBAG is using a Picarro G2301 station that measures CO2, CH4 and H20 from the ceiling of the ICTA-UAB. Located at a height of 147m above sea level, the station takes measurements every 10 seconds based on the cavity ring-down spectroscopy technique. This data is open to everyone by clicking on the image below, where you will also find more technical specifications.
