Short summary
Agricultural production has greatly increased emissions of ammonia (NH3) to the atmosphere. Sparse measurements of surface NH3 concentrations make it challenging and difficult to understand the global distribution of surface NH3 concentrations in both time and space. Estimating surface NH3 concentrations is critically important for modeling the dry deposition of NH3, which has important impacts on the natural environment. This paper provides the satellite-based global assessment of surface NH3.
