NADP workshop: Understanding the linkages between agriculture and reactive nitrogen deposition

The National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) Total Deposition Science Committee (TDep) is organizing a 1-day workshop, “Connecting Stakeholder and Science Perspectives to Better Understand the Linkages Between Agriculture and Reactive Nitrogen Deposition,” to be held in conjunction with the Fall 2019 NADP Science Symposium.

Improving current understanding of the role of agriculture in Nr deposition is identified as an overarching theme where important data and knowledge gaps persist. Advancements needed to address these gaps span a number of research areas including:

  • Characterization of spatial and temporal patterns of reduced N (NH3 + NH4+) deposition
  • Better understanding of Nr emissions from agricultural and non-agricultural sources
  • Improvement of atmospheric deposition models
  • More accurate source apportionment of Nr deposition

This workshop is being held to discuss recent advances and future directions in these topic areas and to better understand the interests and needs of stakeholders that can contribute to, and benefit from, better understanding the role of agriculture in Nr deposition.

The TDep agricultural workshop will be held on Monday, November 4 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Boulder. NADP Technical and Science Committee meetings, which are open to all, will continue on Tuesday, November 5 at the Embassy Suites Hotel.

The annual NADP Scientific Symposium will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, November 6-7, on the campus of University of Colorado-Boulder.

All workshop attendees are encouraged to submit abstracts for poster or oral presentations at the NADP science symposium.

An optional field trip to the Boulder Creek Critical Zone Observatory (BcCZO) will be held on Friday, November 8.

For additional information and workshop/symposium registration, see the NADP 2019 website.
