Project title: Novel methods for measuring gaseous emission dynamics from open sources

Project description:
The aim of this project is to implement and validate methods for measuring emission of harmful gases from open sources in agriculture with focus on greenhouse gases (GHG, methane and nitrous oxide), ammonia (NH3) and odour emission from stored livestock manure.

A key part of the study is to:

  • Understand the chemical and microbial processes that influence GHG and NH3 emission from the stored manure.
  • Combine novel micrometeorological flux measuring techniques with state of art gas measuring instruments (Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy and Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometry equipment - PTRMS).
  • Validate the novel measuring method.

During the study, the methods shall be used to provide valid measurement of the annual emission of GHG and NH3 from full-scale manure store on Danish farms. The data is needed for calculating the annual national gas emission inventory, which must be send to the EU in accordance with the Gothenburg protocols.

Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Anders Feilberg
