Abstract

Using the DNDC biogeochemical model we have estimated the soil emissions of greenhouse gases as CO 2, N 2O and CH 4 and emission of some other nitrogen forms (NO, N 2, NH 3). Direct determinations of these gasses are difficult due to the expensive instrumentations and/or the problem of the generalization and upscaling of measurements. Soil flux of CH 4 was negligible compared to CO 2 emission. Emissions of NO and NH 3 were more effective comparing to rates of N 2 and N 2O. Modelled emissions are in good agreement with the measured fluxes.
