Dear Friends,

This month, we shall talk about Nitrogen and Phosphorus Loading. This is the third boundary that we humans have crossed, so far as Nitrogen is concerned. We shall try to understand why this qualifies to be a planetary boundary, what are its causes, and the possible remedial measures. This note is based upon a lecture by Sarah Cornell, Coordinator of the International Planetary Boundaries Research Network at Stockholm Resilience Centre.
