Abstract: Elevated rates of reactive nitrogen deposition have been invoked as an explanation for significant increases in global carbon sinks. Deposition rates to both land and the oceans are projected to alter markedly during the 21st century and so may play a significant role in determining the future growth rate of atmospheric CO2. Here we examine the evidence for reactive nitrogen input as a key determinant of enhanced biospheric carbon storage in the past and in the decades to come.
