Large amounts of nitrogen fertilizer lead to nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas, in the atmosphere
Chemists from the University of California, Berkeley have discovered evidence of a link between increased fertilizer use and a rise in atmospheric nitrous oxide, a major greenhouse gas.
Measuring the emission of greenhouse gases from croplands should take into account the crops themselves.
Microbiologists identified the structure of the bacterial enzyme that decomposes nitrous oxide and the decomposition mechanism.
Nitrous oxide is a potent greenhouse gas and a precursor to compounds that contribute to the destruction of the ozone.
Reactive nitrogen compounds from agriculture, transport, and industry lead to increased emissions of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O) from forests in Europe.
In a study published December 20 in the Proceedings of the National Academy Sciences (PNAS), a team of researchers including University of New Hampshire scientists Wilfred Wollheim, William McDowell, and Jody Potter details findings that show emissions of the potent greenhouse gas nitrous oxide from global rivers and streams are three times previous estimates used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change â€“ the leading international body for the assessment of climate change.
Waterways receiving nitrogen from human activities are significant source.
A Kansas State University professor is part of a national research team that discovered that streams and rivers produce three times more greenhouse gas emissions than estimated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
