Short summary
In this study, we estimate monthly ammonia emission from synthetic nitrogen fertilizer use across the contiguous US from 1900 to 2015. The results indicate the important role that cropland expansion and nitrogen fertilizer enrichment played in enhancing NH3 emissions. It shows such long-term human activities have dramatically changed the spatiotemporal and seasonal patterns of NH3 emission, impacting air pollution and public health in the US.
