Methane contributions from holding ponds
A desktop study to identify emissions potential and controls in CSG holding ponds and aquatic systems in Queensland
QLD Sources of methane emissions from the Western Downs Region
This project will apply innovative sampling and analytical methods developed by CSIRO to determine sources of methane in air samples collected in the Western Downs Region of Queensland.
Methane emissions from CSG water holding ponds in Queensland
This project aims to provide a comprehensive survey of Queensland CSG holding ponds in the Surat Basin to fully evaluate their methane emissions potential.
