Nitrogen-containing organic matter in rain and aerosol makes up a substantial proportion – 25-35% – of the total nitrogen (N) in atmospheric deposition. Because of data sparseness and poor characterisation, its role in ecosystems and Earth system processes remains unclear. It should now be included routinely in global initiatives dealing with N deposition.
