Soil nitric oxide emissions (tonnes/day) from three CMAQ parameterizations (from Rasool et al., 2016)

BDSNP Module for Improved Soil NO Emission Estimates for CMAQ Model, Conterminous USA

This model product provides: (1) the source code for the updated Berkeley-Dalhousie Soil Nitric Oxide (NO) Parameterization module (BDSNP, Version 1.0) as implemented with the Community Multi-scale Air Quality model (CMAQ, Version 5.0.2), (2) module input data from historical and new sources of maps for soil biome type, fertilizer, and arid and non-arid climates, and (3) sample CMAQ simulation outputs for three BDSNP module NO parameterizations (standard, historical, and newer inputs). The simulations use a 12-km spatial grid resolution for CMAQ modeling covering the conterminous United States for July 2011.
