Source contributions to sulfur and nitrogen deposition – an HTAP II multi-model study on hemispheric transport

Model data Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution (TF HTAP)

Short summary
Have contributions of hemispheric air pollution to deposition at global scale been overlooked in the past years? How do we assess the critical load for the acid deposition when we look for the demand of forest and crop? This study highlights the significant impact of hemispheric transport on deposition in coastal regions, open ocean and low-emission regions. Further research is proposed for improving ecosystem and human health in these regions, with regards to the enhanced hemispheric transport.
