Yung, Y.L., W.C. Wang, and A.A. Lacis, 1976: Greenhouse effect due to atmospheric nitrous oxide. Geophys. Res. Lett., 3, no. 10, 619-621, doi:10.1029/GL003i010p00619.

The greenhouse effect due to nitrous oxide in the present atmosphere is about 0.8°K. Increase in atmospheric N2O due to perturbation of the nitrogen cycle by man may lead to an increase in surface temperature as large as 0.5°K by 2025, or 1.0°K by 2100. Other climatic effects of N2O are briefly discussed.
