Target

target_e_01
  • Better understand the paddy ecosystem response to climate change
  • Quantify the impacts of climate change on methane emission (feedback effect)
  • Explore/test options to enhance adaptation/mitigation under future climate conditions
target_e_02

FACE-N: Free-Air CO2 Enrichment study for paddy rice with a focus on its effect on nitrogen cycle

  • Further understand the paddy ecosystem response to climate change through the interdependency of the carbon and nitrogen cycles
  • Quantify the N flow and the impacts of climate change on N2O and NH3 emissions
  • Develop a combined numerical models to describe the N cycle in the paddy ecosystem
