Impact/Purpose:

This research was conducted under ACE Task 178 to: 1) collect field data for the purpose of characterizing soil N2O emissions from fertilized biofuel crops and; 2) development and testing of an N2O soil emission model suitable for regional modeling applications.

Description:

This presentation describes year 1 field measurements of N2O fluxes and crop yields which are used to parameterize the EPIC biogeochemical model for the corresponding field site. Initial model simulations are also presented.
