Global Atmosphere Watch International workshop

on Nitrogen Cycle

University of York, UK

13-14 April 2016

 

Objective

The objective of the N cycle workshop was to establish the dialog between the expert groups on GAW that include research related to N contacting substances (reactive gases, greenhouse gases, aerosols, total deposition, and marine environment) and establish collaboration with the other international programs and initiatives involved in global N cycle research.
