Atmospheric Ammonia (NH3) total columns from the FY-4A Geostationary Interferometric Infrared Sounder (GIIRS) (Version 2) L. Clarisse https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5051433

Near-real time daily IASI/Metop-A ULB-LATMOS ammonia (NH3) L2 product (total column) L. Clarisse, M. Van Damme, and P.-F. Coheur https://iasi.aeris-data.fr/nh3_iasi_a_data

Short summary
Ammonia (NH3) is the important alkaline gas and the key component of fine particulate matter. We used satellite-based observations to analyze the changes in hourly NH3 concentrations and estimated surface NH3 concentrations and NH3 emissions in China. This study shows enormous potential for using satellite data to estimate surface NH3 concentrations and NH3 emissions and provides an important reference for understanding NH3 variation in China.
