Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999




Item #d94apr31

"Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Motor Vehicles in Tunnels and Their Global Extrapolation," M.G.M. Berges (Airchem. Dept., M. Planck Inst. Chem., POB 3060, D-6500 Mainz, Ger.), R.M. Hofmann et al., J. Geophys. Res., 98(D10), 18,527-18,531, Oct. 20, 1993.

Emissions from catalyst-equipped cars are significantly higher than previously reported. If the world-wide fleet of cars were equipped with current types of catalysts, global N2O emissions could double.

Item #d94apr32

"Nitrous Oxide Emissions from U.K. Power Stations," C.K. Laird (Kingston Univ., Penrhyn Rd., Kingston-on-Thames, Surrey KT1 2EE, UK), S.A. Sloan, Atmos. Environ., 27A(9), 1453-1457, June 1993.

Flue-gas measurements show that the greenhouse impact of N2O from conventional fossil-fuel plants is <1% of that contributed by the corresponding CO2 emissions.

Item #d94apr33

"Oxides of Nitrogen in the Earth's Atmosphere: Trends, Sources, Sinks and Environmental Impacts," O. Badr (Dept. Appl. Energy, Cranfield Univ., Bedford MK43 0AL, UK), S.D. Probert), Appl. Energy, 46(1), 1-67, 1993. A lengthy review covering NO and NO2.

Item #d94apr34

"Fluxes of Nitric and Nitrous Oxides from Agricultural Soils in a Cool Temperate Climate," U. Skiba (Inst. Terr. Ecol., Bush Estate, Penicuik, Midlothian EH26 0QB, UK), K.J. Hargreaves et al., Atmos. Environ., 26A(14), 2477-2488, Oct. 1992. In the U.K. agricultural land may account for 2-6% of total NOx emissions and 16-64% of total N2O emissions.

Specialized Papers

Item #d94apr35

"The Emission of Nitrous Oxide upon Wetting a Rice Soil Following a Dry Season Fallow," B.H. Byrnes (Intl. Fertilizer Develop. Ctr., POB 2040, Muscle Shoals AL 35662), L.S. Holt, E.R. Austin, J. Geophys. Res., 98(D12), 22,925-22,929, Dec. 20, 1993.

Item #d94apr36

"Nitrate Limitation of N2O Production and Denitrification from Tropical Pasture and Rain Forest Soils," W.F.J. Parsons (Dept. Bot., Univ. Wyoming, Laramie WY 82071), M.E. Mitre et al., Biogeochem., 22(3), 179-193, 1993. Notes the impacts of agricultural land use practices and soil disturbance on N2O release.

Item #d94apr37

"N2O Emissions from Stationary Combustion Processes," L. Gourichon (Cerchar, BP 19, F-62670 Mazingarbe, France), A. Joly et al., Rev. Generale Thermique, 32(373), 25-33, Jan. 1993. In French.
