In South Asia, significant progress in atmospheric deposition research has been achieved, steered by two major International programmes; The Composition of Atmospheric Aerosols and Precipitation (CAAP) and Composition of Atmospheric Deposition (CAD). Whilst there is currently no network set up to measure atmospheric deposition in South Asia, research of atmospheric deposition in the region has recently become a part of the South Asian Nitrogen Centre's mandate. In the attached document, the Deputy Director of the South Asia Nitrogen Centre, Umesh Kulshrestha, provides an overview on atmospheric deposition of nitrogen in South Asia.

The University of São Paulo's (USP) Center of Nuclear Energy in Agriculture (CENA) and the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI) announce the São Paulo School of Advanced Science on the unequal distribution of nitrogen in the world and its consequence on the environmental sustainability under a scenario of climate changes.
The School is funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). Other collaborators are Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE), the University of Brasilia (UnB), and the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI). The 10-day course will consist of lectures, theoretical lessons, a technical fieldwork, literature discussion sessions, and student poster presentations.
About 100 graduate students, 50 from Brazil and 50 from other countries will be selected to participate in this São Paulo School of Advanced Science. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a graduate program. We encourage applications from students from different academic disciplines (natural, social and human sciences, engineering) provided their academic work and study is related to nitrogen cycles and related topics. Applications are due by 14:00 São Paulo, Brazil time on 30 May 2016.
