Agri-Environmental Indicator – Risk of Water Contamination by Nitrogen

Agri-Environmental Indicator – Risk of Water Contamination by Nitrogen The Indicator of Risk of Water Contamination by nitrogen (IROWC-N) estimates the risk of water contamination by nitrogen leaching on agricultural lands in Canada from 1981 to 2016. High nitrate level ( > 10 mg N/L) in drinking water may lead to various health impacts including methemoglobinemia (blue baby syndrome) and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. High nitrate levels in surface waters can also contribute to algal growth and eutrophication. 2024-02-15 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada aafc.agri-geomatics-agrogeomatiques.aac@agr.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyClimate indicatorsAEIEnvironmentEarth sciences Data Product Specification (French)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/agriEnvironmentalIndicators/supportdocument_documentdesupport/fr/Indicateur_agroenvironnemental_Azote_residuel_dans_sol_et_risque_contamination_eau_par_azote_SPC_ISO_19131%20-%20annual.pdf Pre-packaged CSV filesCSV https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/agriEnvironmentalIndicators/data_donnees/csv/nitrogen_lazote/ Pre-packaged FGDB filesFGDB/GDB https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/agriEnvironmentalIndicators/data_donnees/gdb/AEI_MGMNT_IROWCN_GDB.zip Pre-packaged GEOJSON filesGEOJSON https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/agriEnvironmentalIndicators/data_donnees/geojson/AEI_MGMNT_IROWCN/ Risk of Water Contamination by NitrogenESRI REST https://services.arcgis.com/lGOekm0RsNxYnT3j/arcgis/rest/services/Risk_of_Water_Contamination_by_Nitrogen_2016_Ag/FeatureServer Risk of Water Contamination by NitrogenESRI REST https://services.arcgis.com/lGOekm0RsNxYnT3j/arcgis/rest/services/Indicateur_de_risque_de_contamination_des_eaux_par_classes_dazote_en_2016/FeatureServer Data Product Specification (English)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/agriEnvironmentalIndicators/supportdocument_documentdesupport/en/ISO_19131_AgriEnvironmental_Indicator_Residual_Soil_Nitrogen_and_Risk_Water_Contamination_by_Nitrogen_Data_Product_Specs%20-%20annual.pdf
