Global and Regional Nitrous Oxide Budget: Data, Models and Uncertainty

This session (session number: B034) aims to bring together research and studies to assist in quantifying N2O budgets at a global and regional scale, through emissions inventory analysis, observations in the field, biogeochemical modelling for terrestrial and oceanic systems, and inverse modelling. Outputs from this session will contribute to the development of the global N2O budget, which is supported by the Global Carbon Project and the International Nitrogen Initiative.

Quantifying Nutrient Budgets for Sustainable Nutrient Management

This session (session number: GC075) will provide opportunities to assess the progress and challenges in the current nutrient budgeting methods and databases, as well as engage discussions on how to improve nutrient budget quantification, for a range of applications. The results of this session will feed into Towards INMS Task 1.1.3.
