Research confirms correct measurement of wet nitrogen deposition

Newsitem | 22-06-2010

In the Netherlands, nearly all wet nitrogen deposition occurs in the form of ammonium and nitrate. Such is the main conclusion from a study of non-routinely measured forms of nitrogen in precipitation. This means that contributions to total nitrogen deposition from substances other than those related to nitrogen oxides and ammonia are likely to be negligible.
