Ammonium sorption and ammonia inhibition of nitrite-oxidizing bacteria explain contrasting soil N₂O production
(Macmillan Publishers Limited, part of Springer Nature and the Nature Publishing Group, 2015-07-16)
Better understanding of process controls over nitrous oxide (N₂O) production in urine-impacted 'hot spots' and fertilizer bands is needed to improve mitigation strategies and emission models. Following amendment with bovine ...
Nitrification gene ratio and free ammonia explain nitrite and nitrous oxide production in urea-amended soils
(Elsevier Ltd., 2017-08)
The atmospheric concentration of nitrous oxide (N₂O), a potent greenhouse gas and ozone-depleting chemical, continues to increase, due largely to the application of nitrogen (N) fertilizers. While nitrite (NO₂⁻) is a central ...
Temperature alters dicyandiamide (DCD) efficacy for multiple reactive nitrogen species in urea-amended soils: Experiments and modeling
Dicyandiamide (DCD) is a nitrification inhibitor (NI) used to reduce reactive nitrogen (N) losses from soils. While commonly used, its effectiveness varies widely. Few studies have measured DCD and temperature effects on ...
