AGRICULTURE SYSTEMS MEASUREMENTS OF GREENHOUSE GASES
National Soil Dynamics Laboratory
2010 Annual Report
1a.Objectives (from AD-416)
Evaluate the impact of various cropping and tillage systems on the flux of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.
1b.Approach (from AD-416)
Texas A&M University will purchase a Shimadzu Gas Chromatograph System for use at the NSDL. NSDL, ARS will run gas samples that will be used in cooperative publications and will use the instrument as needed for other research projects.
The Shimadzu Gas Chromatograph System has been purchased and is being used for the
analysis of gas samples for evaluating the impact of various cropping and tillage
systems on the flux of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. The ADODR has monitored
activities via email correspondence, teleconferences, and site-visits.
