Modelling nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from soil is challenging because multiple biological processes are involved that each respond differently to various environmental and soil factors. Soil water content, organic carbon, temperature and pH are often used in models that predict N2O emissions, yet for each of these factors there are concepts that are not fully understood. Though a ubiquitous measure of soil water for models, the application of functions based on water filled pore space across… CONTINUE READING
