April 3: Webinar Measuring Soil Motion With InSAR and LiDAR

April 3, 2023, 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m Online (Teams) Register here to join Soil movement, and long-term subsidence, can be measured and monitored in several ways. InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) uses radar images of the Earth taken from a satellite. LiDAR stands for Light Detection And Ranging. In this technology, laser pulses (light waves) are […]

Report on SOMERS 1.0

To determine whether the reduction target of 1 Mton from peat meadows as laid down in the Climate Agreement will actually be achieved in the long term, the national CO2 emission reduction in the peat meadow area must be recorded annually. The registration system SOMERS (Subsurface Organic Matter Emission Registration System) has been developed for […]

Save the date: November 3, 2022 LOSS (Living on Soft Soils) symposium

Save the date: The second annual LOSS symposium will take place on November 3, 2022. The LOSS (Living on Soft Soils) research project from the National Science Agenda started at the end of 2020. On November 5, 2021, the first symposium was held in which the researchers presented the first results. It was a day […]

Final report Veen Innovation Program

Over the past two and a half years, the NOBV location in Assendelft has collaborated with the Veen Innovation Program (IPV). The IPV has conducted five years of research into other ways of land use in peat meadow areas. The IPV was completed in May 2022 and the IPV Final Report 2017-2022 was published. A […]

Knowledge Exchange Venture with Wageningen University and TNO Research

The Knowledge Exchange Venture on 30 May 2022 focused on measurements with eddy covariance, nitrous oxide measurements, spatial variation, scaling up and aircraft measurements. >> Click here to watch this Knowledge Exchange Venture Bart Kruijt, researcher at WU in the field of climate change, carbon cycle, land-atmosphere interactions and the Amazon, discussed measuring the variation in […]

Calculation rules SOMERS

The reduction in national CO2 emissions in peatland areas must be monitored annually, in order to determine whether the Climate Agreement reduction target of 1 Mton from peatlands will actually be achieved in the long term. SOMERS (Subsurface Organic Matter Emission Registration System) has been developed for this purpose. With SOMERS, calculation rules have been […]
