Nitrous oxide (N2O) is both a greenhouse gas and a precursor of nitric oxide (NO), which destroys stratospheric ozone. This study presents a global N2O inventory based on re-evaluation of previous estimates and additions of previously uninventoried source categories. The best estimate of anthropogenic N2O is 5.7 Tg/yr, which is still much lower than natural source emissions. Much uncertainty remains about estimates for many source categories. Inadequate data are available for some categories; others are limited by a lack of reliable functional models of factors affecting emmissions rates.
