Item #d95apr70

"Uncertainties in the Global Source Distribution of Nitrous Oxide," A.F. Bouwman (Natl. Inst. Public Health & Environ. Protect.-RIVM, POB 1, 3720 BA Bilthoven, Neth.), K.W. Van der Hoek, J.G.J. Olivier, J. Geophys. Res., 100(D2), 2785-2800, Feb. 20, 1995.

Compiled emission inventories with 1· x 1· resolution from fertilized arable land, animal excreta, soils after clearing, fossil fuel and fuelwood combustion, and industrial N2O sources. Oceanic N2O emissions may be more important than assumed in recent global N2O budgets, with a major portion stemming from the 30·-90·S zone. N2O emission from animal excreta is a significant global source. There are major uncertainties about emissions in the tropics.

Item #d95apr71

"Nitrogenous Fertilizers: Global Distribution of Consumption and Associated Emissions of Nitrous Oxide and Ammonia," E. Matthews (Inst. Space Stud., NASA-Goddard, New York NY 10025), Global Biogeochem. Cycles, 8(4), 411-439, Dec. 1994.

In the mid-1980s, contributions to global N fertilizer use were 37% in East Asia, 17% in North America, 14% in western Europe, and 40% in the tropics and subtropics. No measurements of fertilizer-derived N2O emissions are available for agriculture in the tropics and subtropics, where use is increasing rapidly, so relative contributions of climatic regions to current and future emissions are uncertain. Estimates yearly increases in N2O emissions from fertilizer use to be <1% to 3% of the current growth of atmospheric N2O.

Item #d95apr72

"Nitrous Oxide and Methane Emissions from Aero Engines," (see Global Climate Change Digest, p. 11, Nov.-Dec.).

Specialized Papers

Item #d95apr73

Item #d95apr74

"Microbial Oxidation of Methane, Ammonium and Carbon Monoxide, and Turnover of Nitrous Oxide and Nitric Oxide in Soils," M. Bender (M. Planck Inst. Terres. Mikrobiol., Karl von Frisch Str., D-35043 Marburg, Ger.), R. Conrad, Biogeochem., 27(2), 97-112, 1994.

Item #d95apr75
