Short summary
This study assessed and quantified the transboundary air pollution (TAP) impact in Japan and South Korea. We found that ~70 % of annual ambient PM2.5 in Japan and South Korea was contributed by other countries in the region, and wet deposition had a greater impact on mixed forests in Japan and savannas in South Korea. Given these significant impacts of TAP in the region, it is paramount that cross–national efforts be taken to mitigate air pollution problems across East Asia.
