An investigation of agricultural sources of non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) - WA0803

Description
The main objective of this project is to make a preliminary assessment of the amount of NMVOCs emitted by agriculture in the UK. The proposal meets the Ministry's aims of enhancing the rural environment by reducing environmental pollution. To further this aim the size and source of pollutant emissions need to be known to assess the need for abatement measures. The results will be used to estimate total agricultural NMVOC emissions in the UK and to identify mechanisms leading to their emission.
