Activity: Nitrous Oxide form Soils — Seasonal and Weather Related Variations
The goal of this activity is to highlight the impact of season and weather (precipitation) on GHG emissions from soils managed according to distinct cropping systems.
Instructions: Analyze the graphs in Fig 1 of the paper of Osterholz, Kucharick and collaborators. Describe the trends you see in graphs a and c. Can any of the trends regarding nitrous oxide emissions be informed by your prior discussion? What other factors may be driving these trends?
