Short summary
A 1 × 1 km gridded map on the county level was developed for 2008; a combined bottom-up and top-down method was used for the local correction of emission factors and parameters; the spatial and temporal patterns of historical time trends for 1978–2008 were estimated and the uncertainties were quantified for the inventories; and a sensitivity test was performed in which a province-level disaggregated map was compared with Chinese agricultural fertilizer NH3 emissions for 2008.
