The significance of subsoil denitrification in an agricultural landscape

Shcherbak, I. and G.P. Robertson

Presented at the All Scientist Meeting (2012-03-15 to 2012-03-16 )

Denitrification is the only process capable of returning active nitrogen to dinitrogen, closing the nitrogen cycle.

Denitrification in agricultural fields is responsible for a substantial fraction of the anthropogenic nitrous oxide emitted globally.

Most studies concentrate on denitrification from surficial depths and subsoil (below plow layer) denitrification is poorly understood.
