Call for papers on Denitrification of Soils

A session on Soil Denitrification will be held at the 2019 Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) International Soils Meeting, entitled “Denitrification in Agricultural Soils: Integrated Control and Modelling at Various Scales” Jan 6 -9 in San Diego.

Denitrification is the key process returning reactive nitrogen to the atmosphere. Despite being intensively studied for more than 100 years, soil denitrification rates and emissions of its gaseous products can still not be satisfactorily predicted. The complexity of the process in response to highly temporally and spatially variable soil properties (matrix to field scale) prevents robust prediction of denitrification rates and gaseous emissions.

Keynote speakers:
       Peter Groffman, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies (to be confirmed)
       Marcus Horn, Institute of Microbiology, Leibniz University Hannover (to be confirmed)
       N.N.

Call for papers

Oral or poster contributions are invited. Topics include interactions between effects of key factors on denitrification and its gaseous emissions, and modelling of these processes at scales from matrix to field.

Early registration is until July 24; final registration is Aug 8.
