Project description

Agriculture is the main source of ammonia emissions. Atmospheric deposition of ammonia causes eutrophication
in ecosystems. The goal of this project is the design of a spatially differentiated policy to abate agricultural ammonia emissions. Therefore, economically calibrated operational models will be designed. This models will be used to evaluate effectivity, efficiency and compliance of different policy options.
