In a combined field and laboratory study in the southwest of Burkina Faso, we quantified soil-atmosphere N2O and NO exchange. N2O emissions were measured during two field campaigns throughout the growing seasons 2005 and 2006 at five different experimental sites, that is, a natural savanna site and four agricultural sites planted with sorghum (n = 2),(More)
With the advent of the Microsoft Kinect, renewed focus has been put on monocular depth-based motion capturing. However, this approach is limited in that an actor has to move facing the camera. Due to the active light nature of the sensor, no more than one device has been used for motion capturing so far. In effect, any pose estimation must fail for poses(More)
This study reports carbon and water fluxes between the land surface and atmosphere in eleven different ecosystems types in Sub-Saharan Africa, as measured using eddy covariance (EC) technology in the first two years of the CarboAfrica network operation. The ecosystems for which data were available ranged in mean annual rainfall from 5 320 mm (Sudan) to 1150(More)
This study compares six evapotranspiration ET products for Canada’s landmass, namely, eddy covariance EC measurements; surface water budget ET; remote sensing ET from MODIS; and land surface model (LSM) ET from the Community Land Model (CLM), the Ecological Assimilation of Land and Climate Observations (EALCO) model, and the Variable Infiltration Capacity(More)
Land use specific deposition velocities of atmospheric trace gases and aerosols-particularly of reactive nitrogen compounds-are a fundamental input variable for a variety of deposition models. Although the concept is known to have shortcomings-especially with regard to bi-directional exchange-the often limited availability of concentration data and(More)
The identification of site-specific agricultural management practices in order to maximize yield while minimizing environmental nitrogen losses remains in the center of environmental pollution research. Here, we used the biogeochemical model LandscapeDNDC to explore different agricultural practices with regard to their potential to reduce soil N2O emissions(More)
We applied a (15)N dilution technique called "Integrated Total Nitrogen Input" (ITNI) to quantify annual atmospheric N input into a peatland surrounded by intensive agricultural practices over a 2-year period. Grass species and grass growth effects on atmospheric N deposition were investigated using Lolium multiflorum and Eriophorum vaginatum and different(More)
