Nitrogen is the most abundant gas in the atmosphere. It is an important and essential element of our life. In order to make it biologically functional, the inert nitrogen is transformed into reactive nitrogen forms such as NH3, NO3- and NO2-. The constantly growing demands of food supply and energy usage during the last few decades has caused an increase in fossil fuel burning, fertilizer production and its application. A huge amount of nitrogen is converted into its reactive forms such as urea and other synthetic fertilizers. However, nitrogen is also transformed into reactive nitrogen species through a natural process which converts nitrogen into reactive nitrogen species through biological activity called biological nitrogen fixation (BNF). But the Haber-Bosch process of urea production is a very significant process that is responsible for artificial nitrogen fixation several folds of BNF. Human intervention has altered the natural nitrogen cycle. Automobile emissions contribute NO and NO2 as the reactive nitrogen species. Low use efficiency of N fertilizer is a significant source of N2O emissions from soils. Local as well as long range transport of these reactive nitrogen species have adverse impacts on ecosystems and climate. Excess exposure to NO2 is harmful to plants and their yield. Excessive urea application impacts soil health and further impacting germination and seedling growth. The run off of nitrogen and phosphorus nutrients are responsible for eutrophication of waterbodies having unwanted growth of algae. Hence, research on reactive nitrogen spices and their atmosphere-biosphere interactions is very important in order to understand their sources, transformation, transport, and deposition processes to further understand their impacts on soils, waterbodies and other ecosystems.

The prospective themes of the issue are as given below-

  • Atmosphere-biosphere interactions.
  • Nitrogen use efficiency.
  • Ammonia measurements.
  • Studies on Neem coated urea and NH3.
  • Traditional agricultural practices.
  • Nitrogen outdoor and indoor air pollution.
  • Emission inventories of reactive nitrogen species.
  • Wet and dry scavenging of reactive nitrogen species.
  • Interlinkages of N and C species.
  • Transformations and transport of nitrogen species.
  • Throughfall studies of reactive nitrogen.
  • Source apportionment.
