About China-DNDC

A national inventory of nitrous oxide emissions from cropland in China was developed by integration of the DNDC model (version 8.3P) with county scale data on soil properties, climate, nitrogen fertiliser use and livestock numbers - from which to derive manure nitrogen inputs - and agricultural management (Li et al., 2001).  The national total DNDC model outputs were comparable to the IPCC methodology, although the regional patterns were different - with higher losses predicted by DNDC in areas with high soil carbon content.
