Ecosystem impacts of air pollution - nitrogen and acidification

Project objective:
The objective is to improve our understanding of short and long term effects of nitrogen deposition with respect to recovery from acidification, biodiversity and eutrophication and to provide scientific support for measures to reduce negative impacts on the environment.

The following sub-goals have been identified:
• To further clarify the role of nitrogen accumulation in acidification and recovery of forest soils and surface waters
• To evaluate and further develop dynamic models for nitrogen in forest ecosystems including-vegetation interactions.
• To assess impacts of climate change and forestry on leaching of acidifying and eutrophying substances from forest soils.
