World Resources Institute

WRI is a global research organization turning ideas into action at the nexus of environment, economic opportunity and human well-being.

VU University Amsterdam

VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Department of Hydrology and Geoenvironmental Sciences, aims at studying the terrestrial nitrogen and carbon cycle, observing and developing techniques of observing the exchange of nitrogen components, CO2 and other greenhouse gases between the vegetation and the atmosphere. VU has long-term experience in studying nutrients in estuaries, the atmosphere=biosphere exchange and in integrated nutrient studies.

Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment

Almost four decades ago, SCOPE, the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment, launched a major programme on the biogeochemical cycles of the main elements. Over the years, projects—often developed jointly with UNEP—focussed on the study of carbon, nitrogen, sulphur and phosphorus as well as some of the trace elements (lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic) and their effects on the food chain, resulting in 17 SCOPE monographs and a number of proceedings volumes.

Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency

Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) contributes to improving the quality of political and administrative decision-making by conducting outlook studies, analyses and evaluations in which an integrated approach is considered paramount. Policy relevance is the prime concern in all our studies. They conduct solicited and unsolicited research that is always independent and scientifically sound.

International Plant Nutrition Institute

The International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) is a not-for-profit, science-based organization dedicated to the responsible management of plant nutrition for the benefit of the human family. IPNI began operating in January of 2007 and now has active programs in North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Australia/New Zealand, Brazil, China, Eastern Europe/Central Asia and Middle East, Latin America-Southern Cone, Mexico and Central America, Northern Latin America, North America (Canada and U.S.), South Asia, and Southeast Asia.

Institute for Ocean Management

The Institute for Ocean Management [IOM] was formally established in 1998. The IOM represents a multi disciplinary group within Anna University, which has arisen from a strong tradition in academic research, education, training and consultancy services. IOM forms an integral part of the Department of Civil Engineering, Anna University, Chennai, India; as a critical source of expertise dedicated to ocean and coastal research and resource studies. 

Geochemistry-Utrecht University Submitted by admin on Thu, 10/31/2013 - 9:12pm

Geochemistry-Utrecht University: Geochemical research at Utrecht University emphasizes the study of processes taking place in environments near the Earth's surface, in particular, soils, sediments, aquifers, estuaries, and the ocean. These environments are characterized by the presence of water and are linked to one another via the hydrological cycle. In addition to being a transport agent, solvent and chemical reactant, water is indispensable for life. The biogeochemical functioning of Earth surface environments is increasingly affected by human activity.

Energy research Centre of the Netherlands

The Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), is an independent private-non-profit research institute. The mission of ECN is among others to make a contribution to a cleaner environment. ECN has an international leading position on atmosphere – biosphere exchange, Integrated Nitrogen studies and policy support.
