Nitrification and CH4 Consumption in Fertilized Forest Soils in Lab — Nitrogen Deposition Study - LTER

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Methane consumption and nitrification in forest soils taken from different depths

This datatable is part of the Methane consumption as influenced by nitrogen fertilization and tillage dataset.

This dataset contains data from Pongthep Suwanwaree’s dissertation entitled: Methane Oxidation in Terrestrial Ecosystem’s: Patterns and Effects of Disturbance, submitted to Michigan State University, Department of Crop and Soil Science, 2003.
