  • Description

There is currently a lack of publication in the scientific literature that brings together information on the various anthropogenic sources of nitrogen, their contribution to extensive water-quality degradation, impacts to ecosystem and human health, and the high costs associated with human health maladies, drinking water treatment, economic losses to the fishing industry, tourism, recreation, and property values. This volume will weave together current information on the environmental and economic impacts from excess amount of reactive forms of nitrogen in aquatic ecosystems, surface water bodies, groundwater, and spring systems around the world.

Volume highlights include:

- Key processes of the nitrogen cycle
- Anthropological influence of humans on altering amounts of reactive nitrogen in the environment
- Current strategies for managing nitrogen and its impact on water quality, ecosystems, air quality, and greenhouse gaseswith implications in climate change
- Economic costs, implications, challenges, and strategies for environmental remediation
- Discussion of European nitrogen policies and how they can be applied globally 

Nitrogen Overload: Environmental Degradation, Ramifications, and Economic Costs is a valuable resource for students and researchers in the fields of hydrology, soil science, agricultural science, geology, geophysics, geochemistry, environmental science and ecology.
