Short summary
Soils have been overlooked as a source of reactive nitrogen (N) emissions that are pronounced in the summer ozone season (growing season) and increasingly important as fertilizer use grows, while fossil fuel combustion sources of N decline. Mechanistic process models of soil N emissions are used in Earth science and soil biogeochemical modeling on a site scale. This work mechanistically models soil N emissions for the first time on a regional scale to better understand their air quality impacts.
