The Ministry of Science and Technology of China Founded a project entitled “Sources of reactive nitrogen in China and their impacts on air quality and climate change”
The kick-off meeting of a project entitled “Reactive nitrogen sources of China and their impacts on air quality and climate change” was held in Nanjing Normal University on 18 February, 2014. The project was founded by The Ministry of Science and Technology of China, with a total budget of 15 million RMB. The project was led by Prof. Zucong Cai, the previous direct of INI East Asia center.
Aiming at the “process, mechanism and influence of nitrogen cycle”, the project set up three themes:

  1. N use efficiencies in the N cascade and controlling factors of gaseous reactive N emission,
  2. Transport and transformation of gaseous reactive N and their impact on air quality, and
  3. Climatic effects of atmospheric reactive N

Researchers from Nanjing Normal University, China Agricultural University, Institute of Soil Science, Institute of Atmospheric Physics , and Institute of Urban Environment of Chinese Academy of Sciences are involved in the project.
