Up to now, global scenarios of future nitrogen emissions have emerged as a side-product of the global RCP greenhouse gas emission scenarios developed for the climate modelling community. However, as the RCP process focuses on GHG emissions, the current scenarios might not span the entire possible range of future nitrogen emissions, and do not explicitly address the scope – and importance – of possible policy interventions to manage nitrogen at the different stages.
The workshop will review the key assumptions of the currently available nitrogen scenarios for the 21st century. Presentations will discuss our understanding of the factors that could lead to different developments (breakpoints and options for policy interventions). Concepts to describe drivers and to establish parameters for the release of nitrogen compounds, specifically to the atmosphere, will be discussed.
