Alumni meeting

KNM - webinar: How to overcome the problems of Nitrogen Deposition in the Netherlands? - 14 April 2022

The Wageningen Environmental Studies Alumni Association (KNM) organizes a series of webinars on current topics in environmental sciences, open for all interested alumni, students and others.

Organised by KNM

Thu 14 April 2022 16:00 to 17:00

In the Netherlands, excessive nitrogen deposition poses huge problems to vulnerable nature, which does not meet international agreements. This has resulted in the suspension of e.g. building permits, and to increased efforts to reduce this deposition. In this KNM webinar 3 scientists will share their insights and experiences.

Moderator for this webinar is Dr Caroline Moermond. The webinar takes place via MS Teams.

This activity is free of charge.

Keynote speakers

Emission, deposition, impact and mitigation options

Prof. dr. ir. Wim de Vries is professor at Wageningen University in the discipline of environmental systems analysis. His research is mainly organized around impacts of the input of nutrients (especially nitrogen and phosphorus) in agriculture on air, soil and water quality, greenhouse gas emissions and nature quality.

Modelling Nitrogen Deposition

Jerry Ge (MSc) is a PhD researcher and researches, amongst others, how to use satellites to improve modelling the NH3 deposition in the Netherlands.

Wageningen Regional Development Approach

Drs Tia Hermans (senior scientist at Wageningen Environmental Research) will tell about the Wageningen Regional Development Approach (in Dutch: Gebiedsgerichte Aanpak).
