Ponzoni, Gilda and Marchetti, Rosa and Roggero, Pier Paolo and Iezzi, Giuseppe and Seddaiu, Giovanna and Corti, Giuseppe and Francaviglia, Rosa (2008) Simulating changes of organic carbon content in soil following tillage intensity and fertilizer N rate reduction. Italian Journal of Agronomy, Vol. 3 (3 Suppl.). ISSN 1125-4718. Article.
Economic, environmental, and societal benefits are expected from good practices of soil carbon (C)
management (Kimble et al., 2007). However, new tools are required for national and local
policymakers to accurately estimate the effects of different agricultural management practices on
greenhouse gas emissions and removals. The 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas
Inventories (IPCC, 2006), which provide methodologies for estimating national inventories of
anthropogenic emissions and removals of greenhouse gases, together with the Good Practice Guidance for Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry (IPCC, 2003), provide internationally agreed methodologies for this purpose, and include the possibility of using simulation models as higher order
methods for gas inventories in the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector.
According to the IPCC Guidelines, models should undergo quality-checks, audits, and validations and be thoroughly documented.
