European Agrultural Emissions Inventory Reserachers Network - Leitung und Teilnahme

EAGER is a core group of international scientists trying to improve and harmonize national ammonia emission inventory calculations. Through the exchange they strive to continuously improve their respective N flux models.

Contexte initial

Six N-flow models used to calculate NH3 emissions from agriculture for inventories and policy implementation in UK, DK, NL, DE, CH were compared using standard activity data sets. For liquid manure the results were well comparable. For solid manure larger differences indicated greater uncertainties. In a third WP a survey on punlished and unpulished experimental data on emissions from solid manure was therfore conducted.

But

EAGER aims at achieving a detailed overview of the present best available inventory techniques, compiling and harmonizing the available knowledge on emission factors (EF) and initiating a new generation of NH3 emission inventories.

Résultat

EAGER is a core group of international scientists trying to improve and harmonize national ammonia emission inventory calculations. Through the exchange they strive to continuously improve their respective N flux models.

Perspectives

EAGER regularly communicates its experiences and conclusions to official international expert groups, e.g. in the framework of the UNECE Gothenborg protocol and the CORINAIR. The need for the network and its tasks are regularly assessed.
