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 be found here: http://www.springerlink.com/content/n674017u86423x56/.
