Good management practices for carbon and nitrogen are vital to crop productivity and soil sustainability, as well as to the reduction of global greenhouse gases and environmental pollution. Since the 1950's, mathematical models have advanced our understanding of carbon and nitrogen cycling at both the micro- and macro-scales. However, many of the models are scattered in the literature, undergo constant modification, and similar models can have different names.

Modeling Carbon and Nitrogen Dynamics for Soil Management clarifies the confusion by presenting a systematic summary of the various models available. It provides information about strengths and weaknesses, level of complexity, easiness of use, and application range of each model. In nineteen chapters, internationally known model developers and users update you on the current status and future direction of carbon and nitrogen modeling.

The book's coverage ranges from theoretical comparison of models to application of models to soil management problems, from laboratory applications to field and watershed scale applications, from short-term simulation to long-term prediction, and from DOS-based computer programs to Object-Oriented and Graphical Interface designs. With this broad scope, Modeling Carbon and Nitrogen Dynamics for Soil Management provides the tools to manage complex carbon/nitrogen processes effectively.

Review:

"The book is authored by three experts in the field of agricultural system modeling. Each of the 19 chapters addresses a particular type of model. Organizing the material in this way makes the book useful to engineers wanting to find a model to solve or analyze a particular problem. It would also lend itself well for use as a course textbook. Instructors could easily choose certain models or processes to cover their courses, or the order in which they are discussed. The writing is clear and logically ordered. Each chapter is well referenced and contains its own table of contents. A separate table of contents allows for easier use of individual chapters apart from the whole text and thus adds to the usability of the book. This is a well-written and useable book for both the practitioner and student of soil management" Journal of Environmental Engineering, Volume 128, Number 4, April 2002
