2015 meeting of the Agricultural Inventory Advisory Panel
Information about the 2015 meeting of the Agricultural Inventory Advisory Panel – an independent group of experts who meet to assess proposed improvements to the Agriculture Greenhouse Gas Inventory.
One paper was presented to the panel for consideration – direct N2O emission factors from excreta for different hill country slopes (EF3).
The panel decided that while the methodology used in the paper was acceptable, more data would need to be collected before it could be implemented in the inventory.
