Global average temperatures have been steadily on the increase over time, largely due to
anthropogenic activities that accelerate the production and accumulation of Greenhouse
Gases (GHGs) in the lower atmosphere. Agriculture is a significant contributor of such gases,
emitting approximately 20% of Australia’s national figures. Research into how to identify
and quantify major agricultural sources so as to determine appropriate sequestration
measures is vital. This is necessary to enable Australia to realise its Kyoto targets through the
first commitment period (2008 - 2012) and beyond.
