Exceedance of the critical loads for eutrophication in Europe (as average accumulated exceedances), 2004

How to read the map: for Norway, exceedances of the critical load for nutrient nitrogen are in general not a major problem. Size of grid-cell: 50 km x 50 km.



Additional information

Exceedances can only be found in southern Norway. For the Northern part of Belgium, the critical load for nutrient nitrogen is exceeded by more than 800 equivalents nitrogen per hectare and year (nitrogen is the sum of airborne nitrate-N and ammonium-N deposited).
