The article offers information on n-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP). Its autoignition temperature is at 270 degrees Celsius and its hazardous combustion products are toxic oxides of carbon and nitrogen. People exposed to NMP through inhalation, digestion and skin and eye contact may experience, headache, giddiness, mental confusion, nausea and gastrointestinal disturbances. NMP is used as solvent of the petroleum, pharmaceutical, polymer and electronics industries.

    Forest fires affect both carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycling in forest ecosystems, and thereby influence the soil-atmosphere exchange of major greenhouse gases (GHGs): carbon dioxide (CO), methane (CH), and nitrous oxide (NO). To determine changes in the soil GHG fluxes following a forest fire,...

    Besides agricultural soils, temperate forest soils have been identified as significant sources of or sinks for important atmospheric trace gases (N2O, NO, CH4, and CO2). Although the number of studies for this ecosystem type increased more than tenfold during the last decade, studies covering an...
