Online Training

A variety of measurement techniques have been used to estimate rates of denitrification over various temporal and spatial scales. Methodological and calculation details are described in numerous papers, but subject to interpretation. This series of online training seminars with audio and video clips will be used for general introduction to and clarification of specific steps involved in selected denitrification measurement techniques.
