Palynological evidence for a warmer boreal climate in the Late Pliocene of the Yukon Territory, Canada.

The Late Pliocene (3.6-2.6 Ma) was a period of significant global warmth, considered a potential analogue for future anthropogenic climate change. Newly discovered fine-grained sediments from between the gold-bearing lower and upper White Channel Gravels show the presence of a wetland or lake...

Effect of temperature on adsorption-desorption behaviour of triazophos in Indian soils ground.

The present study investigated the adsorption-desorption behaviour of triazophos on Indian soils at 10, 20 and 40°C using batch equilibrium technique. Results revealed that adsorption isotherms were explained better by Freundlich model and adsorption coefficient (Kf) decreased with increase in...

Effects of nitrogen application on soil nitrification and denitrification rates and N2O emissions in greenhouse.

Nitrous oxide (N2O) has significant impact on global warming and leads to the depletion of ozone in the stratosphere. Agricultural soil is regarded as a major source of N2O emissions. In recent years, greenhouse grown vegetables have rapidly developed in China. Although excessive fertilizer...
