[1] Anthropogenic nitrous pollutant emissions in China significantly increased during the last decades, which contributed to the accelerated nitrogen ( N) deposition. In order to characterize spatial pattern of nitrogen deposition, we employed the kriging technique to interpolate sampling data of precipitation chemistry and ambient air concentration from site-network observations over China. The estimation of wet deposition in China was limited to aqueous NO(3)(-) and NH(4)(+), while ambient NO… Expand
Spatial–temporal patterns of inorganic nitrogen air concentrations and deposition in eastern China
Abstract. Five-year (2011–2015) measurements of gaseous NH3, NO2, and HNO3 and particulate NH4+ and NO3− in air and/or precipitation were conducted at 27 sites in the Nationwide Nitrogen DepositionExpand

It is necessary to consider both dry and wet deposition when evaluating the influences of nitrate deposition on environment and ecosystem health, which indicates the relative importance of dry deposition to the total nitrates deposition in the YRD region. Expand
High Rates of Wet Nitrogen Deposition in China: A Synthesis
Anthropogenic reactive nitrogen emissions (especially NH 3 and NO x ) have been increasing rapidly since the late 1970s in China and may lead to increased atmospheric input of reactive nitrogen toExpand
Quantifying atmospheric nitrogen deposition through a nationwide monitoring network across China
