Description:This is the first book to provide measurements of Greenhouses gases from both aquatic and terrestrial environments as well as from hydroelectric reservoirs. This monograph not only presents the state-of-the-art techniquesfor measuring the emissions of greenhouses gases, but also demonstrates the mechanisms or processes leading to the emissions of greenhouse gases. Itoffers the readera synthesis of what we understand of GHG emission after 12 years of research in boreal ecosystems, the estimations of gross and net emissions from hydroelectric reservoirs, the impact of hydroelectric reservoirson climate change, as well as a comparison of the different alternativesfor producing energy in relation to GHG emission.
