Global Fertilizer and Manure, Version 1: Nitrogen in Manure Production
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_FERMANv1_NMAN


Summary
Abstract: The Nitrogen in Manure Production dataset of the Global Fertilizer and Manure, Version 1 Data Collection represents the amount of nitrogen manure produced and present on the

landscape. The manure production at grid cell level was computed based on livestock population and nutrient excretion rates. The livestock population per grid cell was computed by

multiplying the density values from FAO Gridded Livestock of the World by the area of grid cell. Spatially explicit manure produced and present on landscape is derived by combining the

number of livestock heads and the nutrient excretion rate. The data were compiled by Potter et al. (2010) and are distributed by the Columbia University Center for International Earth

Science Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide nitrogen in manure production data that can be used in socioeconomic and ecological modeling and to explore anthropogenic activities on

ecosystems.
