Primary role in the project

Alterras primary role is related to the generation of disaggregated agricultural N budgets (RC1), comprising the following tasks:

– Developing a spatial model framework on N emissions using the existing INTEGRATOR model and extending the framework by including linkages to external changes in climate, land cover and land management.

– Constructing a spatially disaggregated agricultural N budget for Denmark for the period 1990-2010, using an adapted version of the INTEGRATOR model.

– Perform future predictions of the spatially disaggregated agricultural N budged for the period 2010-2030 for future changes in climate, land cover and land management in response to different scenarios

Additional contribution

The additional role of Alterra is related to assist in the generation of the national N budget terms from agriculture, while focusing on forest, semi- natural regions, ground water and surface water.
