From factory emissions to fertilizer, people have dramatically altered the global nitrogen cycle. The effects are often harmful, such as groundwater pollution with nitrate  here in Oregon. Jana Compton will present EPA research that connects the impacts of nitrogen to ecosystem services and human well-being. This research is helping improve awareness and management of reactive nitrogen in our air, soil, and water. Explore all seminars>>
