New site: NH3 Emission inventory

Newsitem | 21-03-2002

New global inventory of ammonia emissions from application of fertilizers and animal manure to agricultural fields based on a Residual Maximum Likelihood model. By using more measurement data and a model approach based on regulating factors, this new inventory of NH3 volatilization from agricultural fields amended with synthetic fertilizers and animal manure is hoped to be an improvement of previous inventories based on emission factors included in the EDGAR/GEIA inventory.
