Global agricultural N2O emission reduction strategies deliver climate benefits with minimal impact on stratospheric O3 recovery

ABSTRACT Agricultural nitrous oxide (N2O) emission reduction strategies are required given the potency of N2O as a greenhouse gas. However, the growing influence of N2O on stratospheric ozone (O3) with declining stratospheric chlorine means the wider atmospheric impact of N2O reductions requires investigation. We calculate a N2O emission reduction of 1.35 TgN2O yr-1 (~5% of 2020 emissions) using spatially separate deployment of nitrification inhibitors ($70ā€“113 tCO2eāˆ’1) and crushed basalt (no-cost co- benefit) which also sequesters CO2. In Earth System model simulations for 2025ā€“2075 under high (SSP3-7.0) and low (SSP1-2.6) surface ...
