Shipping Emissions

Shipping Emission Simulation

Ships substantially contribute to air pollution in heavily travelled coastal regions by emitting nitrogen oxides. Using computer simulations, researchers at the Institute of Coastal Research have determined the extent of this pollution.

Nitrogen Deposition from Shipping Exhaust Gas

Simulations from the HZG’s Institute of Coastal Research show that shipping exhaust gas is responsible for a substantial amount of nitrogen deposited in the North and Baltic Seas. The water’s nutrient load can now be determined more precisely than ever before thanks to these calculations.
