We found that fertilization with organic and synthetic N both resulted in N2O emission pulses.
However, limited information is available about the soil properties and N2O emission from the land application processes of the sewage sludge and its mixed composting products including manure or straw biomass.
Biofertilizer applications are more environmentally sound and their applications may mitigate the onset of global warming due to N2O emission.
As the application of inorganic fertilizer of 100 N2O kg ha-1 with FYM enhanced the crop yield when sowing on 25 October rather than 15 October and 5 November, respectively.
DAYCENT model analysis of past and contemporary soil N2O and net greenhouse gas flux for major crops in the USA.
The CH4 and N2O uxes were simultaneously measured using a static, opaque chamber method (Zou et al.
High-purity N2O is used for deposition of an insulating oxide film in the process of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) for producing semiconductors.
The mystery of NOR's catalyzing mechanism, however - which accounts for a staggering 70 per cent of the planet's N2O production - remains largely unsolved.
HFC-23 and N2O are both powerful greenhouse gases, which contribute to climate change.
Topics addressed include treatments of hazardous aluminum dust residue from the secondary aluminum industry; quantitative risk assessment of industrial processes; recent trends in red mud and paper mill sludge treatment and reuse for the recovery of contaminated soils, sediments, and waters; photochemical removal of N2O in N2 or air by excimer laser at atmospheric pressure over a wide N2O concentration range; seaweeds for engineering metal biosorption; and sensors of chemical risk.
The latter included significant amounts of the fertiliser product nitrous oxide, or N2O.
MKS also noted that the analyzer can speciate nitrogen oxide (NOx) and hydrocarbons, as well as quantify NH3 and N2O, which traditional analyzers do not monitor.
This itt is for extending the time-series of ch4, Co2 and n2o surface flux fields, Both forwards and backwards (as far as possible) in time, While maintaining their quality at the highest international standard.
