Diurnal soil nitrous oxide emission, soil temperature and other non-diurnal parameter data, UK, 1983-2019, collated from literature

These datasets were used for a study investigating the prevalence of diurnal variability of soil nitrous oxide (N¬2O) emissions. The datasets contain 286 diurnal N¬2O flux datasets and 160 diurnal soil temperature datasets, which were extracted from 46 published journal articles that were selected from a literature search and passed through a set of eligibility criteria. The datasets also include processed diurnal N¬2O flux data, which were used to classify the diurnal N¬2O pattern of the datasets. Data of non-diurnal factors from the literature including soil pH, bulk density, soil texture, season of measurement, soil water-filled pore space, irrigation and grazing are also included in the datasets.

Provenance & quality

Diurnal N¬2O flux and soil temperature data were extracted from figures presented in literature using a data recovery tool – ‘engauge digitizer’ which convert graphic presentations of data to numeric data. Diurnal N¬2O flux data were normalised to eliminate magnitude differences between datasets. Diurnal N¬2O flux datasets were further processed by identifying the times of highest, second highest, lowest and second lowest flux, as well as calculating the percentage of emission between certain 12-hour periods (e.g. 6am – 6pm) over the full day of measurement using trapezoidal integration, to categorise the diurnal N¬2O pattern of each dataset. Other non-diurnal factors were extracted from literature and recorded onto their corresponding diurnal N¬2O flux datasets.
