Results from this thesis concern the calculation of annual fluxes and emission factors of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide from two agricultural soils in Co. Carlow, Ireland. For a cut and grazed pasture in 2004, the annual emission was calculated as 2.4 ± 0.3 kg N2O-N ha -1, or in terms of global warming potential, 200 kg CO2-C equivalents ha -1. In contrast an arable field in which spring barley was grown and managed under two tillage regimes (reduced and conventional) gave an annual emission of nitrous oxide for 2004 of 0.6 ± 0.1 and 1.4 ± 0.1 kg N2O-N ha -1 or 50 and 118 kg CO2-C equivalents ha -1.
