Abstract

A method is presented to simulate nitrogen (N) critical load values per vegetation type in the Netherlands following the method outlined in Chap. 3 and to integrate these simulated critical loads with empirical values to unique values per habitat type as defined in the European Habitats Directive. In this way critical loads are generated that (a) can be used as local deposition targets to comply with the Habitats Directive, and (b) have a broad international support.
