Nitrous oxide is an important greenhouse gas with a global warming potential of 298 times that of carbon dioxide. It is also responsible for the destruction of stratospheric ozone. Concentrations of nitrous oxide have shown continuous growth in the atmosphere over the past century, and nitrogen (N)...
Industrial activities have greatly impacted the quality of the biophysical environment in some areas. This review focuses on the consequences of soil contamination by metallic trace elements: what factors determine the mobility of contaminants in soils and what remediation practices based upon...
