Cropland soils have been shown to emit nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) into the atmosphere and to sequester carbon when field management is improved, yet the spatiotemporal changes in the N2O and CH4 emissions and the soil organic carbon (SOC) in China's croplands are unclear with regard to an integrated global warming potential (GWP). This limits our overall evaluation of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and impairs effective decision making. On the basis of model simulations… CONTINUE READING
