E. , 2003). Flushing of a pit, pumping manure, or processing liquid manure all have a distinct influence on the observed emissions. Also a lack of manure management can cause a transient emission. The emissions of a stagnant pit can be considered transient because of the depletion of the top manure layer (De Bode, 1991).

It also occurs in manure pits in cattle houses, when the cattle is allowed to graze.
