KNM webinar Nitrogen Deposition in the Netherlands

Practical information

  • 14 April 2022
  • 16:00-17:00
  •  Online

The Wageningen Environmental Studies Alumni Association (KNM) organizes a series of webinars on current topics in environmental sciences, open for all interested alumni, students and others.

In the Netherlands, excessive nitrogen deposition poses huge problems to vulnerable nature, which does not meet international agreements. This has resulted in the suspension of e.g. building permits, and to increased efforts to reduce this deposition. In this KNM webinar 3 scientists will share their insights and experiences.

How to overcome the problems of Nitrogen Deposition in the Netherland?

Emission, deposition, impact and mitigation options 20 min

Prof. dr. ir. Wim de Vries is professor at Wageningen University in the discipline of environmental systems analysis.
