Lisbet Norberg


My research work focuses on long-term evaluation of leaching of nutrients from agricultural systems in three different scales; catchment, field and experimental plots. I work with administration of two Swedish environmental monitoring programs; Observation fields (Observationsfält på åkermark) and Catchments in the agricultural landscape (Typområden på jordbruksmark) led by SLU on commission of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. 

My work also includes research activities on separately tile-drained experimental plots at six sites in southern Sweden, including fields in the programme for long-term experiments at SLU. The experiments include cropping systems with e.g. different tillage strategies, structure liming, applications of manure and different types of cover crops.

The PhD project investigated causes and actions for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from cultivated organic soils. Cropping systems, soil type and drainage levels was especially investigated by on-field measurements and laboratory studies of greenhouse gas emissions.
