Reactive Nitrogen Monitoring Gaps: Issues, Activities and Needs

Citation:

Schichtel, B. AND Johnt Walker. Reactive Nitrogen Monitoring Gaps: Issues, Activities and Needs. ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT. Springer-Verlag, New York, NY, 65:12-19, (2015).

Impact/Purpose:

Budgets of total atmospheric nitrogen deposition are needed to support the secondary NAAQS and critical loads research to protect ecosystem health. Current national monitoring networks do not characterize the full suite of nitrogen compounds needed to develop accurate budgets. Additional monitoring of ammonia and organic nitrogen on a national scale is needed.

Description:

In this article we demonstrate the importance of ammonia and organic nitrogen to total N deposition budgets and review the current activities to close these monitoring gaps. Finally, remaining monitoring needs and issues are discussed.
