About the Authors
  • Presenting the first continental-scale assessment of reactive nitrogen in the environment, this book sets the related environmental problems in context by providing a multidisciplinary introduction to the nitrogen cycle processes. Issues of upscaling from farm plot and city to national and continental scales are addressed in detail with emphasis on opportunities for better management at local to global levels. The five key societal threats posed by reactive nitrogen are assessed, providing a framework for joined-up management of the nitrogen cycle in Europe, including the first cost-benefit analysis for different reactive nitrogen forms and future scenarios. Incorporating comprehensive maps, a handy technical synopsis and a summary for policy makers, this landmark volume is an essential reference for academic researchers across a wide range of disciplines, as well as stakeholders and policy makers. It is also a valuable tool in communicating the key environmental issues and future challenges to the wider public.

    • Identifies the five key threats of reactive nitrogen to the environment and illustrates these with location maps to highlight those areas at greatest risk
    • Presents policy makers and environmental managers with the key information on costs and benefits to support integrated management decisions in the future
    • Creates a framework for a global strategy on managing reactive nitrogen in the environment
    • Supplementary online resources include core datasets, a glossary and additional references: www.cambridge.org/ena

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This volume is an incredible undertaking and sets a gold standard for future regional nitrogen assessments. It has been put together in a very instructive format and the excellent summaries for policy and technical experts will be especially valuable in communicating these important findings to a wide audience." - Dr Cheryl Palm, Columbia University (Chair of the International Nitrogen Initiative)

    "Essential reading for all professionals working in the field of nitrogen, this is a truly trans-disciplinary assessment produced by Europe’s leading experts. Demonstrating the urgent need for an integrated approach to managing nitrogen that includes the agriculture, transport, waste, consumption and energy sectors, this landmark volume provides a comprehensive economic analysis of adverse impacts of nitrogen and presents an approach that needs to be adopted globally." - Dr Sybil Seitzinger (Executive Director, International Geosphere-Biosphere Program)

    Mark Sutton is an environmental physicist investigating human alteration of the nitrogen cycle, with specific attention to ammonia. He is coordinator of the major integrated project 'NitroEurope', a 5-year effort, bringing together 64 research institutes to ask how nitrogen is affecting the European greenhouse gas balance. Dr Sutton is vice-chair of the 'Nitrogen in Europe' (NinE) programme of the European Science Foundation and the Director of the European Centre of the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI) and co-chair of the Task Force on Reactive Nitrogen of the UN-ECE Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution.
