Recent incorporation of coupled soil biogeochemical and bi-directional NH 3 air–surface exchange algorithms into regional air quality models holds promise for further reducing uncertainty in estimates of NH 3 emissions from fertilized soils. While this represents a significant advancement over previous approaches, the evaluation and improvement of such modeling systems for fertilized crops requires process-level field measurements over extended periods of time that capture the range of soil… 

Soil–atmosphere exchange of ammonia in a non-fertilized grassland: measured emission potentials and inferred fluxes

A 50-day field study was carried out in a semi- natural, non-fertilized grassland in south-western Ontario, Canada during the late summer and early autumn of 2012. The purpose was to explore

Evaluation of a regional air-quality model with bidirectional NH 3 exchange coupled to an agroecosystem model

Atmospheric ammonia (NH 3 ) is the primary atmospheric base and an important precursor for inorganic particulate matter and when deposited NH 3 contributes to surface water eutrophication, soil

Ammonia emissions from deciduous forest after leaf fall

The understanding of biochemical feedback mechanisms in the climate system is lacking knowledge in relation to bi-directional ammonia (NH3) exchange between natural ecosystems and the atmosphere. We

Advances in Understanding, Models and Parameterizations of Biosphere-Atmosphere Ammonia Exchange

Atmospheric ammonia (NH3) dominates global emissions of total reactive nitrogen (Nr), while emissions from agricultural production systems contribute about two-thirds of global NH3 emissions; the

New Bidirectional Ammonia Flux Model in an Air Quality Model Coupled With an Agricultural Model

Case study analyses indicate that modeled high fluxes of ammonia in CA are often caused by anomalous high soil ammonia loading from EPIC for particular crop types, so further improvements to parameterizations in EPIC and CMAQ are recommended, this system is a significant advance over previous ammonia bidirectional surface flux models.

Measurements of nitric oxide and ammonia soil fluxes from a wet savanna ecosystem site in West Africa during the DACCIWA field campaign

Abstract. Biogenic fluxes from soil at a local and regional scale are crucial to study air pollution and climate. Here we present field measurements of soil fluxes of nitric oxide (NO) and ammonia

Tall Tower Ammonia Observations and Emission Estimates in the U.S. Midwest

Atmospheric ammonia (NH3) has increased dramatically as a consequence of the production of synthetic nitrogen (N) fertilizer and proliferation of intensive livestock systems. It is a chemical of

Ammonia in Rural and Remote Environments

Ammonia (NH3) can harm ecosystems through deposition and react in the atmosphere to increase fine particulate (PM2.5) levels which impact climate and degrade air quality. Despite an abundance of
