Simulations of carbon and nitrogen dynamics in turfgrass systems using the DAYCENT model
MetadataShow full item record
Ecosystem modeling offers an opportunity to better understand the carbon and nitrogen dynamics in a certain ecosystem. Modeling provides a way for researchers to expand their research to larger scales or other situations where field measurements are difficult or costly to conduct. In this study, the DAYCENT ecosystem model was parameterized and validated under home lawn conditions. Long-term effects of irrigation and fertilization on turfgrass quality, soil carbon and nitrogen sequestration, and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions were investigated. The DAYCENT model was also used as a tool to develop ...
