University of Herts signals interest in developing the Carbon Cycling concept

July 5, 2010

The Agriculture & Environment Research Unit (AERU) at the University of Hertfordshire propose to carry out a comprehensive, critical review of the current knowledge base relating to a range of issues centring on the use of ‘forest farming’ to change local climatic (rainfall) patterns in arid and semi-arid coastal areas. This is in response to a proposal from the FREdome Visionary Trust and Andrew K. Fletcher (Operation OASIS) for using increased coastal forestry as a driver for changing local climatic patterns (inducing rainfall/condensation), thereby addressing climate change (through carbon sequestration), and resource depletion (by increasing the productivity of ‘arid’ regions), as well as instigating wider environmental and social benefits. In addition, it has been proposed that there are a number of supporting systems that could be initiated in order to address environmental problems in Europe and North America (sewage related), develop new industries, and provide sustainable energy generation.
