ACTIVITIES TO DATE

Workshop, March 8, 2006, London, Ontario
Similarly to our workshop last year, the participants at this workshop represented researchers, producers, and policy makers. The main goal of this workshop was to identify the supporting measurements and reporting standards for GHG emission studies. Discussions focused on identifying the minimum variables required in a study in order to promote data sharing, as well as the use and evaluation of models.
