Details

This desk-based study has identified the most suitable aerial system, instrumentation and methods to measure the amount of methane released to the atmosphere from UK landfill sites.

It will help the Environment Agency and other government bodies to make an informed judgement on how best to use the potential of aerial measurements to determine how much methane is being released to the atmosphere from UK landfills.

The report’s findings will also help to direct future research and development activity in this area.
