Project: Interaction between ecosystems : The influence of ammonia emission from intensive agriculture on NHx-deposition and N-transformation processes in the soil of forest ecosystems.

project duration
01-JAN-98 – 31-DEC-00
It is the objective of the proposal to investigate the interaction between intensive animal production and the nitrogen - and carbon dynamics in the soil of neighbouring forests. More specifically, the mobility of nitrogen (ammonia) from agriculture to forests is studied. This research should lead to information concerning (1) acid deposition on forests and (2) stimulated nitrate leaching and emission of greenhouse gases (N20) and troposheric ozone precursors (NO) (summersmog).
