Volatilization of manure compounds and their degradation products (e.g., ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, methane) can result in subsequent redeposition on surface waters and land. Deposition of atmospheric ammonia can potentially contribute to eutrophication of surface waters. Odors from AFOs are a common complaint from neighbors.
