🐏 Sheep_lca, a lifecycle assessment tool for sheep livestock systems

license python Code style: black

Based on the GOBLIN (General Overview for a Backcasting approach of Livestock INtensification) LifeCycle Analysis tool, the Sheep_lca module decouples this module making it an independent distribution package.

The package is shipped with key data for emissions factors, concentrate feed inputs, animal features, grassland parameters and upstream emissions.

Currently parameterised for Ireland, but the database can be updated with additional emissions factor contexts, which are selected able with an emissions factor key.

Final results are output as a dictionary object capturing emissions for:

-   enteric_ch4
-   manure_management_N2O
-   manure_management_CH4
-   manure_applied_N
-   N_direct_PRP
-   N_direct_PRP
-   N_indirect_PRP
-   N_direct_fertiliser
-   N_indirect_fertiliser
-   soils_CO2
-   soil_organic_N_direct
-   soil_organic_N_indirect
-   soil_inorganic_N_direct
-   soil_inorganic_N_indirect
-   soil_histosol_N_direct
-   crop_residues_N_direct
-   soil_N_direct
-   soil_N_indirect
-   soils_N2O

Note, that the soil_histosol_N_direct and crop_residues_N_direct category will be 0. Estimation of the soils N2O direct emissions from histosols uses requires the land use data. Emissions can be included using the landcover_lca module and the crop_lca module.
