Update indicators critical loads (static mass balance)

Project Details


The final goal of this project is to update the two environmental indicators \exceedance of critical loads acidification and eutrophication\, which are communicated by VMM's environmental report (MIRA) team via www.milieurapport.be.
A critical burden is the maximum allowable deposition per unit area for a given ecosystem without, according to current knowledge, long-term change in the ecosystem. The current indicators are based on critical charges determined in 2001 using the simple mass balance method (SMB, http://www.icpmapping.org/Mapping_Manual). The availability of new data and insights requires an update.
