Annual pollution deposition grids for the UK for multiple pollutants (2004-2014)

Yearly pollutant data for individual for the UK since 2004. The data has a spatial resolution of 5x5km. The pollutants include: total deposition of oxidised sulphur (non-seasalt), wet deposition of sulphate (non-seasalt), dry deposition of sulphur dioxide, total deposition of nitrogen, total deposition of reduced nitrogen, total deposition of oxidised nitrogen, dry deposition and total concentration of ammonia, wet deposition of ammonium, dry deposition of nitrogen dioxide, dry deposition and total concentration of nitric acid, wet deposition of nitrate, total deposition of base cations (Ca and Mg) and total deposition of acidity.

Note that these are single year values and shouldn't be used to compare with critical loads; they are not vegetation-specific and are based on a grid-average of multiple land classes.
