  • Crop straw incorporation interacts with N fertilizer on N2O emissions in an intensively cropped farmland 

    Xu C; Han X; Ru S; Cardenas L; Rees RM; Wu D; Wu W; Meng F (2019)
    Nitrogen (N) fertilization and straw incorporation strongly influence nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from agricultural fields. An in-situ micro-plot experiment on intensively farmed winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was ...
  • First 20 years of DNDC (DeNitrification DeComposition): model evolution 

    Gilhespy SL; Anthony S; Cardenas L; Chadwick D; del Prado A; Li C; Misselbrook T; Rees RM; Salas W; Sanz-Cobena A; Smith P; Tilston EL; Topp CFE; Vetter S; Yeluripati JB (2014)
    Mathematical models, such as the DNDC (DeNitrification DeComposition) model, are powerful tools that are increasingly being used to examine the potential impacts of management and climate change in agriculture. DNDC can ...
  • The impact of weather on nitrous oxide emissions from arable land in the UK 

    Topp CFE; Smith KE; Thorman RE; Pappa VA; Bennett G; Malkin S; Cardenas L; Chauhan M; Misselbrook T; Munro DG; Rees RM; Anthony S; Sylvester-Bradley R (Aspects of Applied Biology, 16/06/2014)
    The application of nitrogen (N) fertiliser to crops is a major source of nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, a potent greenhouse gas. A key driver of the direct N2O emissions from soil following the application of N fertiliser ...
  • Management opportunities to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from Chinese agriculture 

    Nayak D; Saetnan E; Cheng K; Wang W; Koslowski F; Cheng Y-F; Zhu WY; Wang J-K; Liu J-X; Moran D; Yan X; Cardenas L; Newbold J; Pan G; Lu Y (2015)
    Agriculture accounts for approximately 11% of China’s national greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Through adoption of region-specific best management practices, Chinese farmers can contribute to emission reduction while ...
  • Nitrous oxide emissions from fertilised UK arable soils: fluxes, emission factors and mitigation 

    Bell MJ; Hinton N; Cloy JM; Topp CFE; Rees RM; Cardenas L; Scott T; Webster C; Ashton RW; Whitmore AP; Williams JR; Balshaw H; Paine F; Goulding KWT; Chadwick DR (2015)
    Cultivated agricultural soils are the largest anthropogenic source of nitrous oxide (N2O), a greenhouse gas approx. 298 times stronger than carbon dioxide. As agricultural land covers 40–50% of the earth’s surface agricultural ...
  • Optimizing chamber methods for measuring nitrous oxide emissions from plot-based agricultural experiments 

    Chadwick DR; Cardenas L; Misselbrook TH; Smith KA; Rees RM; Watson CJ; McGeough KL; Williams JR; Cloy JM; Thorman RE; Dhanoa MS (2014)
    Nitrous oxide emissions (N2O) from agricultural land are spatially and temporally variable. Most emission measurements are made with small ( 1m2 area) static chambers. We used N2O chamber data collected from multiple ...
  • UK emissions of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide 

    Skiba UM; Jones SK; Dragosits U; Drewer J; Fowler D; Rees RM; Pappa VA; Cardenas L; Chadwick D; Yamulki S; Manning AJ (2012)
    Signatories of the Kyoto Protocol are obliged to submit annual accounts of their anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, which include nitrous oxide (N2O). Emissions from the sectors industry (3.8 Gg), energy (14.4 Gg), ...
