Chemical processes occurring on leaf surface and in air inside vegetation canopies play significant and sometimes dominant roles on pollutant dry deposition budgets. Yet, these processes are seldom explicitly treated in dry deposition parameterizations/models. This report briefly summarizes the current knowledge, outstanding issues, and recommendations for pollutant leaf surface exchange including ammonia (NH3), ozone (O3) and nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO + NO2), acidifying pollutants, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and atmospheric aerosols.
