Effect of Biochar on Soil Microbial Communities, Nutrient Availability, and Greenhouse Gases in Short Rotation Coppice Systems of Central AlbertaDownload
Short rotation coppice (SRC) systems using willow (Salix spp.) grown on marginal soil, amended with biochar may represent a promising source of renewable green energy for rural communities of Alberta. The Ohaton Wood Energy project, an agroforestry site located in Camrose County, is one of...
This thesis focuses on formulating and analyzing non linear models for microbial dynamics vis-a-vis human and environmental health. Firstly, we develop and investigate a stoichiometric organic matter decomposition model in a chemostat culture that incorporates the dynamics of grazers. This...
Fugitive emissions of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) from a lagoon containing biosolids were continuously measured using an eddy covariance system for three months. Open Path Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (OP-FTIR) was also used to quantify concentrations of methane and ammonia...
