Jesper Nørlem Kamp

During his PhD studies, Jesper Nørlem Kamp researched gas emission methods from agriculture. Reliable concentration measurements are a cornerstone for source specific emission rate estimates.  Jesper Nørlem Kamp developed and validated a sensor for ammonia measurements in an agricultural environment and studied different methods to determine emission rates from a defined area.

The new research findings contribute to the understanding of ammonia emission mechanisms and the methodology of emission rate measurements from agriculture.

The PhD study was completed at The Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering, Faculty of Technical Sciences, Aarhus University.

This summary was prepared by the PhD student.
