DNDC (i.e., DeNitrification-DeComposition) is a computer simulation model of carbon and nitrogen biogeochemistry in agro-ecosystems. The model can be used for predicting crop growth, soil temperature and moisture regimes, soil carbon dynamics, nitrogen leaching, and emissions of trace gases including nitrous oxide (N2O), nitric oxide (NO), dinitrogen (N2), ammonia (NH3), methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2).
This web site allows you to download a package of the latest version of DNDC and relevant models (Manure-DNDC, Forest-DNDC and US Ag GHG Calculator) with relevant documents. The user’s guides contain detailed information to assist you to operate the models.
