FROM VOLUME 7, NUMBER 4, APRIL 1994
- ANTHROPOGENIC EMISSIONS: NITROGEN OXIDES
Oxide Emissions from Motor Vehicles in Tunnels and Their Global
Extrapolation," M.G.M. Berges (Airchem. Dept., M. Planck
Inst. Chem., POB 3060, D-6500 Mainz, Ger.), R.M. Hofmann et al., J.
Geophys. Res., 98(D10), 18,527-18,531, Oct. 20, 1993.
Emissions from catalyst-equipped cars are significantly higher
than previously reported. If the world-wide fleet of cars were
equipped with current types of catalysts, global N2O emissions
Oxide Emissions from U.K. Power Stations," C.K. Laird
(Kingston Univ., Penrhyn Rd., Kingston-on-Thames, Surrey KT1 2EE,
UK), S.A. Sloan, Atmos. Environ., 27A(9),
1453-1457, June 1993.
Flue-gas measurements show that the greenhouse impact of N2O
from conventional fossil-fuel plants is <1% of that
contributed by the corresponding CO2 emissions.
of Nitrogen in the Earth's Atmosphere: Trends, Sources, Sinks and
Environmental Impacts," O. Badr (Dept. Appl. Energy,
Cranfield Univ., Bedford MK43 0AL, UK), S.D. Probert), Appl.
Energy, 46(1), 1-67, 1993. A lengthy review covering

Temperate Climate," U. Skiba (Inst. Terr. Ecol., Bush
Estate, Penicuik, Midlothian EH26 0QB, UK), K.J. Hargreaves et
al., Atmos. Environ., 26A(14), 2477-2488, Oct.
1992. In the U.K. agricultural land may account for 2-6% of total
NOx emissions and 16-64% of total N2O emissions.

Univ. Wyoming, Laramie WY 82071), M.E. Mitre et al., Biogeochem., 22(3),
179-193, 1993. Notes the impacts of agricultural land use
practices and soil disturbance on N2O release.
