New article in Science of the Total Environment published: "Review of scenario analyses to reduce agricultural nitrogen and phosphorous loading to the aquatic environment"

Fatemeh Hashemi together with colleagues from the Aarhus University published a “Review of scenario analyses to reduce agricultural nitrogen and phosphorus loading to the aquatic environment” in Science of the Total Environment. They reviewed 130 published papers extracted from the Web of Science from 1995 to 2014 about the use of models to analyse scenarios of agricultural impacts on nutrients loadings. These papers cover a broad range of climatic conditions, with a large focus on measures targeting land cover/use and land management for reducing the source load of N and P in the landscape. Only a few studies have considered spatially targeting measures in the landscape, and such studies are more recent. Also the use of stakeholders for designing scenarios and for communication of results does not seem to be a widespread practice, and it would be recommendable for future scenario studies to have a more in-depth involvement of stakeholders.
