Welcome to the Target-N2O website, a project funded under the Horizon 2020 Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Global Fellowship programme. This training-through-research fellowship supports international mobility and knowledge exchange for the awarded researcher, Dr Karina Anne Marsden. The project is comprised of a two year outgoing phase (2018-2020), hosted by Prof. Richard Eckard at The University of Melbourne, followed by a return year with the project PI, Prof. Dave Chadwick at Bangor University (2020-2021).
In the outgoing phase, Karina will learn new techniques in molecular ecology, stable isotope methods and modelling and will bring the new skills learnt back to Bangor University in the return year. The overarching aims of project are to determine the agronomic and environmental cost-benefits of a targeted nitrification inhibitor (DMPP) application strategy in N2O emission hot-spots of intensive dairy pastures.
