Title: Testing a Conceptual Model of Soil Emissions of Nitrous and Nitric Oxides

Author: Davidson, Eric A.; Keller, Michael; Erickson, Heather E.; NO-VALUE, Verchot Louis V.; Veldkamp, Edzo;

Date: 2000

Source: BioScience. Vol. 50 No. 8 :677-680

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Nitrous and nitric oxides are often studied separately by atmospheric chemists because they play such different roles in the atmosphere. N2O is a stable greenhouse gas in the lower atmosphere (the troposphere; Ramanathan et al. 1985), but it participates in photochemical reactions in the upper atmosphere (the stratosphere) that destroy ozone (Crutzen 1970). In contrast, NO participates in photochemical reactions in the troposphere that produce ozone.
