As discussed at previous plenary INMS meetings, a major output of the INMS project will be a first global assessment on nitrogen - termed the ‘International Nitrogen Assessment’ (INA).
Progress in developing the INA will continue to be shared through a series of workshops, to ensure engagement between the chapters, parts and whole publication, as well as between authors, contributors and members of the wider INMS partnership.
INA-2 will be the second network-wide workshop on the structure and content of the INA, following the first workshop (INA-1) which was previously held in December 2020.
At INA-2, Co-ordinating Lead Authors (CLAs) for each chapter will provide an update on first drafts of Track 1 chapters and progress to date on Track 2 chapters. As well as updating the community, we will also be aiming to identify gaps within the current first drafts and progress documents and ensure consistency between the chapters and parts of the assessment. Please note that as many chapters are awaiting data, not all first drafts will be complete documents and will instead consist of what authors have drafted to date.

Programme of Events & Key Information
We will be using Zoom Webinar for this workshop, where the Editors and CLAs will be ‘panellists’ who will present and provide comments, while enabling the wider community to both listen in and ask questions via the Q&A chat function.
Sessions will run over several days to minimise time-zone issues (whilst we appreciate that for some persons the times will still fall well outside ‘normal working hours’).
Please see below the planned schedule of events and here (this link will take you away from the page) for a summary of INA chapters, including their tracks, and relevant Parts.
