Dr Niall McNamara is a process ecologist who specialises in the study of microbial greenhouse gas production and consumption in soils.

Within Carbo-BioCrop

Niall McNamara is coordinating the input of the Lincolnshire Miscanthus and SRC field sites within workpackage 2. This will provide data on net ecosystem carbon balance for SRC willow and Miscanthus as monitored using flux towers and the Eddy covariance method. This data will be complemented by infra-red gas analyser (IRGA) measurements of CO2 at the soil surface and static chamber measurements will be made for the trace greenhouse gases N2O and CH4.
