A number of videos created by CLAD can be seen on our Youtube channel CLAD TV.

This short film describes research published in Nature suggesting that global warming has the potential to destabilize carbon sequestered in peat bogs, releasing CO2 back into the atmosphere. It includes an interview with Prof Chris Freeman whilst a Royal Society Research Fellow at Bangor University, describing work funded by the Royal Society, NERC and the Leverhulme Trust.

A CLAD film showing some of the work we are undertaking on the Gordonbush estate near Brora on the east coast of Scotland. Piston cores are taken from Loch Brora to reconstruct aspects of the environmental history of a catchment currently being developed for a windfarm.

Other CLAD videos can be seen on our Youtube channel CLAD TV.

A video of a recent CLAD sponsored meeting allowing Dr Jo Smith and Dr Dali Nayak to meet users of ther recently created 'Carbon Payback Calculator for Windfams on Peatland'. This is one of a series of videos which can be seen on CLAD TV and are shown on the CLAD website here.
A short film in which the NGO 'Wetlands International' outlines the potential for the degradation of the world's peatlands to increase CO2 emissions to the atmosphere and the importance of managing peatlands for climate change mitigation.
The LIFE Active Blanket Bog in Wales project is a partnership between the RSPB, CCW, the Environment Agency (Midlands region and Wales) and the Forestry Commission Wales. It has the aim of restoring active blanket bog in the Berwyn and Migneint Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) in Wales. Funding for the project has been secured from the EU LIFE-nature programme. www.BlanketBogsWales.org
Hydrological restoration of upland blanket bog in the North Pennines using peat dams to block moorland drains which are known as 'grips'.
A film detailing research taking place in continental Europe which looks to elucidate details of carbon flux via gas exchanges in varous terrestrial environments.
A panoramic shot of the Whitelee windfarm located near Eaglesham to the south of Glasgow. Since 2006, the catchments draining this development have been monitored by Glasgow University CLAD researchers for a number of water quality parameters, including dissolved organic carbon, to determine if the windfarm construction affects water quality.
