Impact/Purpose:

Scientists and managers from government, academia, NGOs and the private sector came together in June 2014 to review the science and management related to reactive nitrogen and co-pollutants (e.g., phosphorus, sulfur) across the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The purpose of the meeting was to develop a collaborative research and management partnership between USDA, USGS and EPA, in order to promote sustainable management of reactive nitrogen. Achieving our common goals of improving air and water quality, food security, and human health and welfare will require coordination of research, policies and management across a variety of Federal agencies, and this workshop identified a number of key areas of future coordination. An outcome of this meeting is the formation of a collaborative relationship between EPA, USGS and USDA that advances reactive N research to inform science based management, improves communications, and recommends alternative approaches to managing N in an integrated framework. This workshop report will be posted on an EPA website.
