ARBRI/UK Research paper on modelling of nitrous oxide emissions from farmyard manure and green compost has been published

Wed, 05/23/2018 - 00:00

Organic fertilizers, such as manure and compost, that are applied to soils may increase nitrous oxide (N2O, a greenhouse gas) emissions due to their lower C/N ratios, and potentially contribute to global warming. This research paper, published by Dr. s Wang and Shen ofARBRI (Athabasca University), with researchers from Cambridge and Notinghamshire in the UK has been published the magazine Science and the Total Environment.

New findings by ARBRI Researchers on stream temperatures in Soil, Water Assessment Tools is published

Tue, 04/24/2018 - 00:00

A new paper from ARBRI researchers Xinzhong Du, Narayan Kumar Shrestha, and Junye Wang with Darren L. Ficklin was published by the European GeoSciences Union. This report is on the  "Incorporation of the equilibrium temperature approach in a Soil and Water Assessment Tool hydroclimatological stream temperature model", showing the results of incorporating the hydroclimatological stream temperature model developed within a SWAT model, which considers hydrology and the impact of air temperature in simulating the water–air heat transfer process.

The paper was published on the Hydrology and Earth Systems Sciences website.
