(Non-commercial academic use only)
DNDC (i.e., DeNitrification-DeComposition) is a computer simulation model of carbon and nitrogen biogeochemistry in agro-ecosystems. The model can be used for predicting crop growth, soil temperature and moisture regimes, soil carbon dynamics, nitrogen leaching, and emissions of trace gases including nitrous oxide (N2O), nitric oxide (NO), dinitrogen (N2), ammonia (NH3), methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2).

Application setup

This Nuvolos application starts a VSCode environment and has WineHQ 9.1 installed in it. Python 3.11 is also installed in a conda environment. VSCode has useful extensions installed, such as Python, Jupyter, and PyLint.
