Environmental monitoring of methane emission to the atmosphere from landfills, Tenerife

September
Number of positions available: 2 Undergraduate Students

internships_08_2018

Methane (CH4) is an important greenhouse gas: the total positive climate forcing attributed to CH4 over the last 150 years is 40% that of carbon dioxide. Fugitive methane emissions from landfills are significant global sources of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere.

The goal of this study is to evaluate the fugitive methane emission from a closed landfill in Tenerife. The two selected undergraduate students for this programme will collaborate with field and lab work related to INVOLCAN’s Environmental Monitoring of Methane Emission from Landfills in the Canary Islands.

During this programme students will learn how to:

  • perform in-situ surface landfill gas efflux measurements
  • collect surface landfill gas samples for methane analysis
  • apply statistical-graphical analysis on the landfill methane degassing survey data
  • estimate the total diffuse methane emission from landfills using Gaussian simulations
  • perform chemical analysis of the collected surface landfill gas samples by means of micro-chromatography (microGC)
