Delineating a knowledge framework for understanding the spatial and temporal aspects of soil carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions in diverse agricultural landscapes.

The Landscape Management of Agricultural Systems Network is a network of the Croplands Research Group of the Global Research Alliance.

The network aims to develop management decision tools for reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the landscape level. This model-based tool could explore management strategies at the landscape and catchment scale, using various models and different scales. The network aims to develop effective decision support tools, validate models, and test available tools.

Upcoming activities for the Network include:

  • Developing the processes of the CNMM-DNDC model
  • Testing the model performance in simulating emissions of GHGs, NO and NH3, evapotranspiration, or nitrogen losses by leaching/runoff using field measurements in China or other countries such as USA or Spain
  • Formatting the inputs and outputs of CNMM-DNDC for model users from GRA members
  • Looking for application opportunities of CNMM-DNDC in GRA members.
  • Aligning research opportunties with the Integrative Research Group.
