Otago University research on New Zealand-related international aviation emissions being published

Exactly a year ago I posted on research by Otago University Physics Department academics Inga Smith and Craig Rodger. That research has now been accepted as a peer-reviewed paper, Carbon Emission Offsets for Aviation-Generated Emissions due to International Travel to and from New Zealand, to be published in the journal Energy Policy.

Last year we made contact and hosted them at the Ministry of Transport. It is proving to be a good example of how officials can cooperate with academia to address pressing public policy issues. Students from Otago are now working with us in research on emissions from international transport to and from New Zealand.
