WEBINAR: OpTIS and DNDC Environmental Dynamics, Oct 16 11am EDT

Modeling Environmental Dynamics with DNDC and OpTIS Data, Oct 16, 11am EDT

The Nature Conservancy, CTIC and Dagan would like to invite you to the second webinar in our OpTIS series—this one on how a variety of users are employing the DeNitrification-DeComposition (DNDC) model and OpTIS to estimate the influence of soil health practices on soil carbon and nitrogen dynamics. The one-hour webinar will be held Friday, October 16, at 11:00 am EDT.

When the OpTIS data set—a ground-validated analysis of conservation adoption that spans 2006 to 2018 across most of the Corn Belt—is run through the DNDC model, it provides an outstanding depth of insight on the environmental effects of conservation farming practices adopted on watershed and landscape scales.

We will be joined by:

Ward Smith, Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada

Steve Rozenzweig, General Mills

Debbie Reed, Ecosystem Service Market Consortium

In addition, Bill Salas of Dagan, Inc. will explore the possibilities and nuances of using DNDC to mine OpTIS data for insights into changes in soil carbon, nitrous oxide emissions and nitrate leaching.

There will also be a Q&A session with the presenters.
