Spatial analysis of nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, nitrate (NO3) leaching, and soil carbon of bioenergy cropping systems from farm to regional and national scale.
USDA-ARS and Colorado State University (CSU) will conduct systems level analyses of environmental impacts by bioenergy crops. Spatial analysis of N2O emissions, NO3 leaching, and soil carbon in bioenergy cropping systems will be conducted over a range of landscape scales from farm, state, region, and national scale using the DayCent model.
