Mass Balance Tables
The two tables display preliminary calculations of N inputs and exports in California.
Table 1: Inputs of N into California
Table 2: Exports of N from California

**Headings in bold are the sums of the indented subcategories below, with the exception of N deposition. The value of 223 tons of N is based on the results of the CMAQ model and the values for NOx and NHx below are from ARB emission data. The new reactive N in deposition should only come from sources outside of California (i.e. transport across the Pacific Ocean) or fossil fuel combustion in California. Some component of deposition, especially NHx, represents internal N cycling within California, e.g. redeposition of ammonia volatilization from livestock manure. At present, however, the modeled estimate of total N deposition is lower the estimated fossil fuel emissions.
