Another “grand challenge” for engineering is managing the nitrogen cycle. Use the nature of the chemical bond in diatomic nitrogen to explain why any management is needed for this biogeochemical cycle. With so much nitrogen available in the atmosphere, why are engineering solutions needed to manage nitrogen for agricultural uses?
All I know is, nitrogen in fertilizer can embed the water table and change the pH, which then becomes toxic as it reaches the Gulf (In the US). Might start with that.
Thanks So Much!!
I am looking for the answer of that question, if you have another answer, let me know.
