Modelling and Mapping of Exceedance of Critical Loads and Critical Levels for acidification and eutrophication in the UK; 2012-15 - AQ0826

Description
The contract seeks to deliver information on the exceedance of critical loads and critical levels fo rthe UK for sensitive habitiats to acidification and eutrophication.
Objective
Delivery of annually updated critical load and crticial level exceedance data for acidification and eutrophication to feed into Defra biodiviersty, air quality and inland waters statisitcs and to monitor the progress of policy.

At Defra's requests to model the effect of emission scenarios on depostion and concentration and to estimate the impact on ecology of that depostion.
