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.
Athabasca University is pleased to announce that the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has named Assistant Professor Dr. Scott Ketcheson as a Canada Research Chair in Hydrological Sustainability.
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.
