Notes on the selection of a methodology for estimating biomass in a REDD projectMayo 2012
REDD projects are increasingly being presented as a useful tool in the fight against climate change.
These projects generate carbon credits that can be traded in the voluntary market. Future projections point towards an increase in REDD projects and consequently to an increase in credits generated. One of the most important in considerations when quantifying these credits is an estimate of biomass present in the forest, which is the focus of this essay. Presented here is a proposal for selecting the most appropriate methodology, incorporating the minimum standards required in the voluntary carbon market, and new advances taking place in the scientific arena.

Manual for the Restoration of Coastal DunesMayo 2010
Coastal dunes are unique terrestrial transitional ecosystems found between continental and marine environments. They are extremely fragile, balanced in form, development and evolution to natural processes, and vulnerable to human action.
This publication addresses the main techniques for the restoration of coastal dunes, giving a comprehensive review of key issues in the development and conservation of coastal dune systems.
The Climate Change Challenge to the Engineering IndustryMayo 2010
Alejandro López-Cortijo and Elena Pellón Gil
With the exclusion of a few productive processes, such as agriculture or intensive livestock farming, greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in our country are closely linked to energy use. Hydrocarbon combustion processes in just a thousand installations, be they for electricity generation or thermal heat, are responsible for 45% of total emissions at national level.
On a global scale this pattern of behaviour is, if we add deforestation, identical (except if referring to deforestation processes, responsible for 20% of GHG emissions).
This is why the climate change problem must be addressed together with a thorough review of the existing energy model.
