Non CO2 greenhouse gas sources from managed and natural soils - fluxes and mitigation
MetadataShow full item record
This paper outlines the current knowledge of the processes controlling nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) fluxes, methods of measurement, mitigation options and models designed to simulate N2O and CH4 fluxes. Natural and managed soils are globally important sources and sinks of the main non- CO2 greenhouse gases (GHG) N2O and CH4. Compared to CO2 their global warming potential over a 100 year period is 298 and 25 times, respectively, larger than that of CO2.
