Evaluation of Tavs Nyord’s Ph.D. thesis and defense.
Tavs Nyord defended on September 4th, 2009 his Ph.D. thesis entitled “Soil injection of animal slurry in growing cereal crops and succeeding ammonia and odour emissions”. The experimental work was carried out partly at the Institute of Agricultural Engineering, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, University of Aarhus, Denmark and partly at the National Soil Resources Institute, Cranfield University, Bedfordshire, UK under the supervision of Professor Sven G. Sommer, Southern University of Denmark, Professor Martin H. Jørgensen, Engineering College of Aarhus, Senior Scientist Lars J. Munkholm, Institute of Agroecology and Environment, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, University of Aarhus. Further the English supervisors were Dr. Terence Richards and Professor Richard J. Godwin, National Soil Resources Institute, Cranfield University, Bedfordshire, UK
During the defense on September, 4th, 2009 Tavs Nyord gave a clear presentation entitled “Soil Injection of Animal Slurry in Growing Cereal Crops and Succeeding Ammonia and Odour Emmisions”. This indicated that he is capable of setting his work into a wider scientific perspective, producing a good synthesis, and presenting the result convincingly in an engaged talk. In the subsequent oral examination, Tavs Nyord defended his work to the satisfaction of the committee.
Based on the thesis and the defense, the committee in full agreement recommends that Tavs Nyord is honored by the Ph.D. degree.
