Welcome to the Macronutrients Cycles Programme

Snowy hills (c) Paul Whitehead

Macronutrient cycles - nitrogen (N), carbon (C) and phosphorus (P) - are pivotal in the stability of global biogeochemical cycles, in sustaining natural resources and in protecting human health and biodiversity. Human activities have enhanced global cycles of N and P by on average 100% and 400%, respectively.

The overall goal of the Macronutrient Cycles programme is to quantify the scales (magnitude and spatial/temporal variation) of N and P fluxes and nature of transformations through the catchment under a changing climate and perturbed C cycle. NERC has allocated over 9.5m to this programme.
