Short summary
In this study, we analyzed air concentration data on SO42-, NO3-, NH4+, HNO3, and SO2 measured by CASTNET in the US and by CAPMoN in Canada to reveal the temporal and spatial trends of air pollutants over the eastern US and Eastern Canada. We also explained (1) why the reductions of SO2 were faster than SO42- and (2) why NO3- did not decrease during the cold season except in the Midwest and southern Ontario despite NOx emissions being significantly reduced for the whole region.
In this study, we analyzed air concentration data on SO42-, NO3-, NH4+, HNO3, and SO2 measured...
