Enter the numerical amounts into the appropriate spaces provided to the right of each measurement, (default amount is 0), then click the button titled "Calculate".
- Emissions are estimated for conventional tillage systems only. Reduced tillage will normally decrease soil C emissions. Pastures are assumed to maintain Soil C.
CO2-e (carbon dioxide equivalents) = 1 * CO2 emitted + 23 * CH4 emitted + 296 * N2O emitted
- Soil C emissions (0-30 cm) are estimated using the SOCRATES soil C model.
- Animal emissions are based on the simplified IPCC calculations.
- Fuel, nitrogen fertiliser and ancillary N2O emissions (dung, urine) are estimated using the Australian National Greenhouse Gas Inventory methodology.
