A short time ago I was involved in a project on EU legislation on the extraction of mineral resources. My section was on the laws and regulations in Latvia. Unfortunately, the European Commission has not yet given its approval to publish the report of the study and, consequently, for the time being, I can’t publish also my report for this study. However, I will share a small part of the results – the legislation scheme on the extraction of mineral resources.
It is not easy to navigate in the legislation jungles in Latvia. Let this scheme serve as a landmark for those brave who are ready to take a risk and DIG!
Please download scheme here.
Lake and Peatland Research Centre is the only organization from Latvia taking part in the TeaComposition H2O initiative that aims to tease apart the factors that make some ecosystems greenhouse gas emitters while others carbon-sequestering ecosystems. TeaComposition H2O is a global-scale analysis of litter decomposition within wetland ecosystems using household tea bags or Tea Decomposition by monitoring how fast tea bags buried in the soil decompose. There are over 350 sites around the world located in 35 countries and the project will last for three years. For more information read later or see http://www.bluecarbonlab.org/teacomposition-h2o/
