Atmospheric Deposition of Nitrogen in South Asia

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.
