Video - HOLOS: A GHG Calculator Growing Up. Presentation by Dr. Roland Krobel

Dr. Roland Kroebel outines where ecosystem modeling for agriculture is moving in a presentation to the 50th Alberta Soil Science Workshop. Starting with a GHG calculator, HOLOS, Dr. Kroebel proposes adding a number of other models, for carbon, soil moisture, nitrogen and environmental footprints to create a "Virtual Farm" concept. The key to all this is access to data. This means other scientists need to be willing to share their datasets to create a robust modelling system for Canadian agricultural production.

Dr. Roland Kroebel is a  Research Scientist doing ecosystem modelling with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Lethbridge, Alberta.
