Nitrous oxide is the third most important in global warming terms of the greenhouse gases, after carbon dioxide and methane. Although it only comprises 320 parts per billion of the earth's atmosphere, it has a Global Warming Potential nearly 300 times greater than that of carbon dioxide.
The aim of this book is to provide a synthesis of scientific information on the primary sources and sinks of nitrous oxide and an assessment of likely trends in atmospheric concentrations over the next century plus the potential for mitigation measures.
'This timely book provides an excellent analysis of the key sources and sinks of the important greenhouse gas nitrous oxide, N2O, and of likely future trends in emissions and the prospects for mitigation. It will be a valuable source of information to audiences ranging from policy makers to professionals in climate change research and environmental science students.' James Galloway, Sidman P. Poole Professor, Dept. Environmental Sciences, University of Virginia, USA; winner of the 2008 Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement
