Abstract: Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a long-lasting and potent greenhouse gas responsible for depletion of stratospheric ozone. As the atmospheric N2O concentration reaches all-time highs, emission variability in space and time still leaves unresolved questions. The aim of this thesis is to improve our understanding of the origin of N2O and its main drivers from the largest anthropogenic source: agricultural soil. Therefore, we investigated agricultural soil from long-term trial field sites in the laboratory ... more
