Nowadays new or improved methods are available to measure denitrification, even if it is still easier to measure potential than actual denitrification, and some methods imply a certain disturbance of the system under investigation. The interest in the origin of dinitrogen oxide in the atmosphere has increased because of its role as a greenhouse gas, and dinitrogen oxide is one of the main products of denitrification, particularly in acid environments such as most forest soils. These proceedings contain papers presented at the Copenhagen Workshop on denitrification held in November 1989. Topics discussed include methods for field measurements of denitrification, spatial distribution of nitrification and denitrification in an acid forest soil and denitrification in wet forest soil systems.
