The effects of land use and land use change on soil green house gas (GHG) fluxes are concerned due to Kyoto protocol requirement. Carbon dioxide, CH4 and N2O fluxes, emission and global warming potential from soil under a tropical dry deciduous forest and Eucalyptus plantation at Mogari, central Gujarat, Western India were measured for three months (February- April, 2011) at fifteen days intervals using closed static chamber technique and gas chromatography method. However, little information…

A considerable amount of atmospheric GHG is produced and consumed through soil processes. Soils provide the largest terrestrial store for carbon (C) as well as the largest atmospheric CO 2 sources
Quantification of greenhouse gas emissions from managed biofuel plantations in a semi-arid landscape of Southern India
Jatropha curcas L. and Pongamia pinnata (L.) Pierre, are promising biofuel species in peninsular India. We quantified greenhouse gas fluxes from managed 9 year old plantations of these species for
Assessments of Atmospheric Interchanges of Green House Gas Emissions from the Cultivated Land: Study Based on Edaphic Gradients of Plantations in Semi Arid Region of Gujarat, India
The study of the magnitude of temporal and spatial patterns of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) fluxes from the cultivated land of subtropical regions of India is still an uncharted territory. The paper
Biogeochemistry of methane in a tropical monsoonal estuarine system along the west coast of India
Abstract Estuaries are known to be important sources of methane (CH 4 ) to the atmosphere. However, a lack of adequate field studies in understanding the sources/sinks of CH 4 in estuaries hampers
Methane emission monitoring was carried out using close static chamber method from Wheat agriculture farm for the period of 21days. Two study sites following Conventional type of farming and Organic

PSD-Nepal mission is to provide a network for sharing technical information and expertise on agriculture, climate and environment sector. It aims to bring people with a common interest together and


Soil–atmosphere exchange of greenhouse gases in a Eucalyptus marginata woodland, a clover-grass pasture, and Pinus radiata and Eucalyptus globulus plantations
Soils provide the largest terrestrial carbon store, the largest atmospheric CO2 source, the largest terrestrial N2O source and the largest terrestrial CH4 sink, as mediated through root and soil
Soil–atmosphere greenhouse gas exchange in a cool, temperate Eucalyptus delegatensis forest in south-eastern Australia
Abstract Forests are the largest C sink (vegetation and soil) in the terrestrial biosphere and may additionally provide an important soil methane (CH 4 ) sink, whilst producing little nitrous oxide
Responses of soil organic matter and greenhouse gas fluxes to soil management and land use changes in a humid temperate region of southern Europe.
Abstract We studied the effects of soil management and changes of land use on soils of three adjacent plots of cropland, pasture and oak (Quercus robur) forest. The pasture and the forest were
Greenhouse gas fluxes from soils of different land-use types in a hilly area of South China
Abstract The magnitude, temporal, and spatial patterns of greenhouse gas (hereafter referred to as GHG) fluxes from soils of plantation in the subtropical area of China are still highly uncertain. To
Methane and carbon dioxide exchanges between the atmosphere and northern boreal forest soils
CH4 and CO2 fluxes were measured in upland boreal forest soils near Thompson, Manitoba, from May 16 to September 16, 1994. Most sites consumed atmospheric CH4, fluxes ranging from +0.6 to −2.6 mg CH4
The influence of afforestation and tree species on soil methane fluxes from shallow organic soils at the UK Gisburn Forest Experiment
There is growing evidence that land use is an important factor in influencing soil methane (CH4) fluxes, and afforestation is viewed as a potential tool for mitigating CH4 releases from soils.
Soil‐atmosphere exchange of N2O, CH4, and CO2 and controlling environmental factors for tropical rain forest sites in western Kenya
[1] N 2 O, CH4 and CO 2 soil-atmosphere exchange and controlling environmental factors were studied for a 3-month period (dry-wet season transition) at the Kakamega Rain forest, Kenya, Africa, using
Soil respiration and carbon balance in a subtropical native forest and two managed plantations
From 1999 to 2003, a range of carbon fluxes was measured and integrated to establish a carbon balance for a natural evergreen forest of Castanopsis kawakamii (NF) and adjacent monoculture evergreen
Nitrogen addition reduces soil respiration in a mature tropical forest in southern China
Response of soil respiration (CO2 emission) to simulated nitrogen (N) deposition in a mature tropical forest in southern China was studied from October 2005 to September 2006. The objective was to
