[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset refers to the Final Report of the ISP round I project number 003,
which has the name "NITROGEN TRANSPORT AND TRANSFORMATIONS: A REGIONAL AND
GLOBAL ANALYSIS". This project was established by the Executive Committee of
SCOPE in 1993. Five workshops addressing human acceleration of nitrogen cycling
have been held in different regions of the world since 1994, and five working
group meetings to synthesize knowledge and prepare the final report, which can
