The bremner factor for elucidation of nitrous oxide evolution from soils

“There is concern that nitrogen fertilization of soils may pose a threat to the stratospheric ozone layer and adversely affect our climate by increasing emission of nitrous oxide (N2O) from soils to the atmosphere through anaerobic reduction of nitrate by denitrifying microorganisms. . .”
