Greenhouse gas exchange and nitrogen cycling in Saskatchewan boreal forest soils
Despite the spatial significance of Canada’s boreal forest, there is very little known about greenhouse gas emissions within it. The primary objective of this project was to study the atmosphere-soil exchange of CH4 and ...
Dynamics of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide fluxes in planted shelterbelts and adjacent cropped fields
For more than a century, over 600 million shelterbelt trees have been distributed to land owners in the Canadian Prairies mainly to protect farms from soil erosion and extreme wind events. In Saskatchewan, there exists ...
Spatial and temporal patterns of nitrous oxide and their relationship to soil water and soil properties
Soil N2O flux is sensitive to soil moisture content and soil temperature, which are in turn sensitive to changes in climate and topography. Thus, N2O flux measurements exhibit a high degree of spatial and temporal ...
Greenhouse gas emissions from irrigated crop production in the Canadian Prairies
Irrigated agriculture in the Canadian Prairies is in a position to play a prominent role in addressing global food demands imposed by a growing world population. Particularly within Saskatchewan there is potential to see ...
Microbial Regulation of Soil Greenhouse Gas Emissions in a Non-Bloat Legume Grazing System
Cattle pastures are a source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including enteric methane from ruminating cattle, carbon dioxide (CO2), and nitrous oxide (N2O) from microbial respiration of soil carbon (C) and nitrogen ...
