GCS UPDATE: Field research begins on Beetaloo

As part of the filling research gap proposal, GCS is collecting soil data on Beetaloo Station in the Northern Territory.

This field work kicked off in late September and is continuing through to mid November.

The objective of the project is to demonstrate a commercially cost-efficient method to measure rangeland soil organic carbon content and composition utilising remote sensing and in situ ground based spectrometry
for application in Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) methodologies. This method extends and complements the Soil Carbon Research Program (SCaRP) field and laboratory methods.

The outcome of the project will be a tested measure of rangeland soil organic carbon. This method will be used in a CFI soil carbon methodology for a robust assessment of carbon stocks in rangelands. The project will be undertaken on 100,000 hectares of central Australian rangeland across two properties.
