Soil-gas diffusivity and soil-moisture effects on N₂O emissions from intact pasture soils
(Wiley on behalf of the Soil Science Society of America, 2019-07)
Grazed pastures are recognized as a dominant source of nitrous oxide (N₂O), a highly potent greenhouse gas. Studies have examined soil physical controls on N₂O emissions, including soil moisture status. Limited attempts ...
